At least 41 people were killed after a Russian plane made an emergency landing and burst into flames at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow.

Videos on social media show passengers using emergency exit slides to escape the burning Aero-flot aircraft.

Two children and a flight attendant were among the dead, and one witness said it was a "miracle" anyone escaped the jet, which was carrying 78 passengers and five crew.

Veronika Skvortsova, head of Russia's ministry of health, said in a statement that six patients are in hospital - three of whom are in a critical condition.
