Boeing 737 with over 100 on board crashed after takeoff in Havana

 Boeing 737 has crashed after takeoff from José Martí International Airport in Havana. The plane belongs to Cubana de Aviación and was reportedly carrying over 100 on board.

The plane reportedly crashed shortly after takeoff. It was bound for Holguin, a domestic flight of about one hour and 20 minutes.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who arrived at the scene, has said that there are “a high number of victims,” reported AFP.

In a picture supposedly taken from inside the airport, a plume of black smoke can be seen rising from the end of a runway, as firefighters responded to the incident.

According to state media, the jet was leased by Cuba’s national airline, Cubana de Aviación, and flown by a foreign crew.
