Russia hunts for body fragments, clues after fatal plane crashBy Andrew Osborn MOSCOW (Reuters) - Hundreds of emergency workers in Russia scoured snow-covered fields outside Moscow on Monday, collecting body fragments and clues after a plane crash a day earlier that killed all 71 people on board. President Vladimir Putin has ordered a special commission to investigate what caused the AN-148 plane operated by Saratov Airlines to crash outside Moscow shortly after taking off for the city of Orsk about 900 miles (1,500 km) southeast of the capital. Experts on Monday started studying the plane's two flight recorders, as well as some of the around 500 plane fragments recovered so far.
