Emergency teams are searching snow-covered fields for human remains and debris after a Russian airliner crashed outside Moscow, killing all 71 people on board.

All 65 passengers and six crew on board were killed.

Russian transport minister Maxim Sokolov said the search for victims\' remains will take a week. He added that the emergency teams have already found the plane\'s flight data recorder, which is crucial for determining the cause of the crash.
