Russia is reporting a crash of a Proton M/Briz M this morning carrying 
Japanese satellite JCSAT 11.
Initial reports are that the failure took place at 74km altitude, at 
139sec when there was a separation failure.
There was no explosion at altitude - the stages then curved down to 
impact 50km from Dzezhkazgan.
