Trump offers Putin condolences over plane crash: White House

AFP  |  Washington 

US called his Russian counterpart today to offer his condolences after a deadly plane crash near Moscow, a White House told AFP.

The call between the two leaders -- who are at the centre of an FBI investigation into Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 US election -- took place after a plane crashed minutes after take-off from Domodedovo airport, killing all 71 people on board.

Russian officials said the pair also discussed the Middle East peace process.
