People Killed In Military Plane Crash In Algeria

At least 100 people are feared dead in a military plane crash in Algeria on Wednesday, local media said.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash, which occurred shortly after takeoff from the Boufarik military airport, 16 miles southwest of Algiers.

Algerian army officials have ordered an investigation into the cause of the crash and plan to visit the scene.

Three days of mourning have been declared in Algeria after 257 people were killed when a military plane crashed on Wednesday.

Most of the dead are army personnel and their families, according to the defense ministry.

The plane had been heading to Tindouf on the border with Western Sahara, Algeria's defence ministry said. The authorities were working to identify remains of those killed.

It was the first crash of an Algerian navy airplane since February 2014, when a US -built C-130 Hercules turboprop slammed proper right into a mountain, killing in any case 76 people and leaving just one survivor.

Passengers from Western Sahara, a disputed territory annexed by Morocco after Spain withdrew in 1975, were among the fatalities.

USA and Russian Federation could set Middle East on fire, warns Ankara
Syria's regime is backed militarily by Russian Federation in the country's civil war, which has been waged since 2011. The president urged Moscow to stop the arms race it was conducting, as Russian Federation needed the US' help.

Some people were also killed on the ground. The plane came down in an open farm field near the base, the ministry says. It is widely used for both commercial freight and military transport. Earlier in February 2014, a U.S. built C-130 Hercules military aircraft mainly carrying military personnel and their relatives had barged into the mountainous region of Oum El Bouaghi.

An Air Algerie passenger plane flying from Burkina Faso to Algiers crashed in northern Mali in July 2014, killing all 116 people on board including 54 French nationals.

Most of the victims were soldiers and family members. There was a single survivor.
