A Turkish private-owned plane has crashed in Kyrgyzstan, killing 32 people, most of them on the ground, say officials.

The Boeing 747 crashed into homes near Manas airport, about 25km (15 miles) north of the capital.

A number of children are reported to have been among those killed.

The flight was heading to Manas from Hong Kong, en route to Istanbul, when it crashed.
