More than 100 people have died after a Boeing 737 airliner crashed near Jose Marti International Airport in Havana, Cuban state media say.

Three people have survived but are in a critical condition, Cuban Communist Party newspaper Granma reported.

The aircraft, on a domestic flight to Holguin in eastern Cuba, crashed shortly after taking off from Havana. According to sources, the plane had carried 110 passengers and crew.

In a televised address, the Cuban president, Miguel Díaz-Canel, offered his condolences to victims’ families and said an investigation into the disaster had been launched.
