Greek soccer club owner threatens referee while carrying pistol after goal disallowed
Spare a thought, though, for Greek football club PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis , who is seemingly unconcerned by any of that. A group of fans ran onto the pitch, as well as the club's owner, who appeared to have a gun in his pocket.

He called the back-to-back crashes an "unfortunate coincidence". "It was just bad".

"The airplane was not properly aligned with the runway". "When control tower asked the pilot if there was any problem, the pilot said everything is okay".

Nepali authorities say the plane had an unusual landing while the airline says it was the air traffic control's fault.

Chettri said that moments after the plane received permission to land, the pilot said he wanted to go in a northern direction. The authorities also told a news conference the pilot descended from a route opposite to the one assigned by air traffic controllers. There were no reports of injuries. The fire at the accident site has now been controlled and the airport officials, as well as Nepalese army, have been pressed into the evacuation process.

Andrew Blackie, an aviation consultant, pilot and former accident investigator for the British government, said investigators will be looking into all aspects of the crash, such as mechanical failure, weather and operational error. Hundreds of people stood on a nearby hill, staring down at what remained of the propeller plane.

The hill-ringed airport, based about six kilometres from the centre city, is the sole global airport for the country and is located in the Kathmandu valley. "All of a sudden there was a blast and then another blast", she added. "Then, no more light but a tall billow of thick black smoke rose in the air".

Meanwhile, the out-of-production Challenger business jet that crashed in Iran was owned by the private holding company of Turkish businessman Huseyin Basaran.
