Topic: Russia seeks clues over plane crash that killed 50

By Mikhail Antonov and Nikolai Isayev KAZAN, Russia (Reuters) - Russian investigators sifted through the charred remains of a Boeing 737 airliner on Monday in the search for clues about what caused it to crash and burst into flames, killing 50 people, officials said on Monday. Sunday's crash raised new concerns about Russia's poor safety record as it prepares to host the Winter Olympics in the southern city of Sochi in February, an event on which President Vladimir Putin has staked a lot of personal political prestige. Residents of Kazan wiped away tears as they lay flowers at the airport where the plane crashed in windy weather, with some venting anger over Russia's bad safety record. Flags flew at half mast in the city 800 km (500 miles) east of Moscow.
