A Russian Proton rocket with an advanced satellite on board after lift-off crashed outside of Kazakhstan's territory, probably in Altai or Pacific Ocean, reports citing ria.novosti. 

There are so far no reports of damage or casualties.

All other launches of Proton-type rockets will be halted at Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan until the reason for the crash is determined, a source told RIA Novosti.

There was an emergency engines shutdown on the 540th second following the launch on Friday, the Russian Federal Space Agency said, as quoted by ria. ru.
