Cypriot plane crash kills 121

A Helios Boeing 737 has crashed into a mountain in Greece killing all on board. F-16 jets were sent to escort the plane into the airport when it went down with all 115 passengers and 6 crew. Authorities have not yet ruled out terrorism, CNN have reported. However it is likely the pane crashed because of a technical error. Reuters report a text message was sent from a passenger's phone to his cousin saying, "the pilots have turned blue". The Cypriot plane was on route to Athens from Larnaca.
