Algeria plane crashAn Algerian military transport plane has crashed in mountains in the north-east of the country with 103 passengers and crew on board.

The plane - reported to be a Hercules C-130 - crashed in a mountainous area of Oum al-Bouaghi province, en route to Constantine. An "informed source" told Ennahar radio station a badly injured survivor had been found and taken to hospital.

The plane is said to have been carrying military personnel and family members.

Women and children were among the dead, officials said.

Its original departure point is believed to have been the Sahara Desert garrison city of Tamanrasset, 1,500km (950 miles) south of Constantine, but it had made a stop in Ouargla.

The source told Ennahar - which has close links to the government and army - that contact was lost with the military plane between Oum al-Bouaghi and Constantine, as it may have been starting to make its descent prior to landing.
