Taiwan TransAsia Airways plane crash kills at least 40

A passenger plane has crashed after a failed emergency landing in Taiwan, killing more than 40 people, local officials say.

The domestic TransAsia Airways flight crashed near Magong airport on the outlying Penghu island.

Earlier on Wednesday, Taiwan was battered by strong winds and rain from a tropical storm, Typhoon Matmo.
