Plane crashes in Algeria killing 200 servicemen - media

No less than 200 military servicemen might have died in a crash of an Ilyushin-76 military transport plane in Algeria, according to local media.

The plane crashed shortly after leaving the airdrome of a military base in Boufarik, 50 kilometers south of the capital Algiers.

As many as 14 ambulances and ten fire engines were dispatched to the horror blaze, according to local reports.

All roads around the airport were closed to help emergency services carry out a desperate rescue mission, the Sun reported.

But an Algerian military source told local news broadcaster Al-Hadath that there are no survivors.
