Russia: Sukhoi Superjet plane crash survivors greeted by family on return to Murmansk

Some of the survivors from Sunday's Sukhoi Superjet-100 plane crash at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport were reunited with friends and family as they returned to Murmansk on Monday.
Russia's Investigative Committee confirmed earlier that 41 out of 78 people on board the Sukhoi Superjet were killed after the plane caught fire while landing at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport on Sunday evening.
The 37 survivors comprised of 33 passengers and four members of the crew.
The investigators are reportedly considering various explanations as to what caused the incident, among which are insufficient qualifications of pilots, dispatchers and persons who conducted technical inspection of the board, aircraft malfunction and adverse weather conditions.
Aeroflot confirmed on its website that flight SU1492 from Moscow to Murmansk "suffered an engine fire upon landing after being forced to return to Sheremetyevo International Airport due to technical reasons." Its crisis response team has been activated, according to the same post online.
