A passenger plane skidded off the runway in Turkey and stopped short of falling into the Black Sea soon after it landed at an airport in northern Turkey. Photographs from the scene showed the plane stuck in mud, dangling precariously off a cliff.

The province's governor said all 162 passengers and crew on board were evacuated and safe.

The Pegasus Airline's Boeing 737 was flying from the Turkish capital Ankara to Trabzon Airport.

Other images from Dogan news agency showed smoke emanating from the trapped plane.
