At least 49 people died Saturday when pro-Russian rebels shot down a Ukrainian military transport plane in the separatist eastern region of Lugansk, a military spokesman told AFP.

"This is our preliminary information," Ukrainian defence spokesman Vladyslav Seleznyov said. "Details about how many people were on board are still being checked."
