Algeria military plane crash kills two – ministry

ALGIERS, Feb 22 (NNN-AGENCIES) — An Algerian military plane crashed during a training flight, killing two people on board, the defence ministry said.

The Russian SU 24 aircraft crashed late on Wednesday in an inhabited agricultural area in the northern province of Tiaret, the ministry said in a statement.

It was the first such incident since the country’s worst military plane crash that killed 257 people in April last year at a military base near Algiers. — NNN-AGENCIES
