A small civilian plane on Saturday crashed in Turkey's capital of Ankara after hitting power lines, killing the pilot and wounding the co-pilot, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

The Cessna 170 plane crashed into the garden of a house in the Esenboga suburb near Ankara's international airport with no report of casualties on the ground.

The co-pilot, with serious injuries, was rushed to a nearby hospital.

The plane was registered to an Istanbul-based aviation club.
