A Yemeni airport official says a plane from Yemen's national carrier bound for the Indian Ocean country of Comoros has crashed in the ocean. It was not known how many passengers were on board the Yemenia Air plane or the reason for the crash.

The official said Tuesday most of the passengers on the Airbus 310 were believed to be Comoros residents returning from Paris.

The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
