On the night of July 2nd, a Russian Tu-154 passenger aircraft of Bashkir Airlines collided with a DHL freight Boeing-757 at the height of 11,000 metres near Lake Boden, Germany. There were 12 crew and 57 passengers on board the Tu-154--52 children headed for a vacation and 5 grown-ups accompanying them. Two pilots were on board the Boeing.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
