Investigators in Russia are examining whether the pilot of a passenger jet which crashed near Kazan with 50 deaths had a valid pilot's licence.

The Boeing 737's captain may have only been qualified to serve as a navigator.

It appears he obtained his commercial pilot's licence from a flight centre which has since been closed down.

All passengers and crew were killed when the Tatarstan Airlines plane crashed at Kazan airport on 17 November, while trying to land.
