Fighter jet crashes in Kazakhstan

ALMATY (Reuters) - A Russian-designed MiG-29 fighter jet crashed near Kazakhstan's commercial capital on Tuesday, killing the pilot, the defence ministry said.
The ministry said in a statement the training aircraft crashed while performing an exercise flight at a military base outside Almaty in the south of the Central Asian state.
It said the pilot and his co-pilot both ejected from the plane but only one of them survived the crash.
A Russian military training aircraft crashed in Russia last month in similar circumstances, killing its pilot.
