A Yemeni military plane has crashed in the capital, Sanaa, killing all 10 people on board, officials have said.

The Antonov came down in an empty market in the al-Hassaba district as it tried to make an emergency landing after one of its engines failed.

One resident said there were three explosions as the plane crashed. Several shops were destroyed. It is not clear if anyone on the ground was hurt.

Officials said there was no indication of any sabotage.
