Authorities say an Antonov plane has crashed near the town of Kavala in northern Greece.
The plane was en route from Serbia to Jordan, but authorities were unable to confirm whether it was a passenger or cargo flight, or how many people were on the plane.
The pilot managed to alert authorities to a problem in one of the aircraft’s engines, and he was given the choice of landing at Thessaloniki or Kavala airports. He chose Kavala, which was closer, but the plane crashed about 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the airport.
