ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Black smoke is seen rising near a part of the airfield where planes were parked at Moscow's Vnukovo airport on Tuesday (April 11).

A Reuters photographer said when the smoke was spotted, Tillerson's aircraft had yet to land. A spokesman for the Moscow directorate of the Emergencies Ministry said the smoke was caused by grass and refuse which had caught fire outside the perimeter of the airport.
