On Saturday, an eight-person military transport plane crashed near the northeastern Greek port of Kavala.

Just seconds after requesting an emergency landing, the AN-12 aircraft owned by Meridian Air Cargo crashed 36 kilometers from Kavala airport.

Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic announced on Sunday that all eight crew members died in the crash.

According to the minister, the Antonov 12, which is owned by the Ukrainian business Meridian LTD, was bringing roughly 11 tonnes of weapons, including illuminated mortar mines, to Bangladesh.

Videos of the plane being hit by a flame before landing were shared on social media by witnesses.

A local TV also aired other videos showing the Antonov wreckage dispersed across a large region.

The crew was entirely composed of Ukrainians, according to Denys Bohdanovych, general manager of Meridian, who spoke to German television network Deutsche Welle.

According to Stefanovic, the aircraft took off from the Nis airport in southern Serbia on Saturday at around 8:40 p.m. local time with weapons that were exported by the Serbian private business Valir.

According to Greek media, the aircraft requested permission to make an emergency landing at Kavala airport but was unable to do so.

Until authorities can remove the debris and explosive ordnance, locals are not allowed to visit the camps close to the location of the disaster.
