An Antonov AN-72 carrying 27 passengers and crew has gone down in the mountains of Kazakhstan, killing everyone on board. The aircraft belonged to
the Kazakhstan border troops, and was travelling to Shymkent from Astana. It was making an approach to Shymkent, and went down about 20 miles short
of the runway. There are reports that weather may not have been the best lately with strong winds, and heavy snow.
