A passenger plane with 100 people on board crashed Friday shortly after takeoff from Almaty airport in Kazakhstan, the government said.

News agencies quoted the emergencies ministry as saying nine people were killed and nine were injured.

The airport said the plane lost attitude at 7:22 a.m. (0122 GMT).

In a statement on its Facebook page, the airport said there was no fire and a rescue operation got underway immediately following the crash.

The plane was flying to Nur-Sultan, the country's capital formerly known as Astana.

The aircraft was identified as a Fokker-100, a medium-sized, twin-turbofan jet airliner. The company manufacturing the aircraft went bankrupt in 1996 and the production of the Fokker-100 stopped the following year.
