>> A village in ruins after a Boeing 747 cargo jet came down trying to land in heavy fog. At least 37 people dead, many of them residents of a town near Kyrgyzstan's Manes airport. The plane was supposed to make a stopover at Manes, near the country's capital. It was en route from Hong Kong to Istanbul, with four people thought to have been on board.
Reports suggest the plane plowed through properties for a few hundred meters, damaging at least 15 buildings. An area the size of a football pitch was completely leveled. Locals say they initially thought it was an earthquake. Turkish Airlines say the cargo flight was operated by ACT Airlines and neither the Boeing 747-400 aircraft, nor the crew, belong to Turkish Airlines.
Turkish Cargo operator ACT airlines confirmed the jet was theirs. The hunt is now on for more information as officials try to piece together what went wrong
