At least four people died when a 42-year-old Soviet-built cargo aircraft crashed into the ocean while trying to land in Abidjan, capital city of the Ivory Coast.

The aircraft, which was carrying cargo for the French military broke up after crashing onto the beach.

Several members of the crew survived according to reports on local media.
The airport management company confirmed that six of the crew were injured with two of them in a serious condition.
Locals attached ropes to the aircraft's tail in an effort to drag the wreckage back ashore to assist crash investigators.
