Forty-nine Ukrainian troops killed in plane shot down by rebels - military spokesman

KIEV, June 14 (Reuters) - Forty-nine Ukrainian military personnel were killed when rebels shot down a cargo plane over the airport of the eastern city of Luhansk overnight, military spokesman Vladislav Seleznov said on Saturday.
