Algeria Buries Plane Crash Victims
Funerals have been held in Algeria for some of the victims of Wednesday’s plane crash.
Most of the 257 people who died when the plane came down were members of the military and their families, who were travelling to another army base in the country.
The deadly incident was Algeria’s worst air disaster in its modern aviation history.
The aircraft came down in a field just after taking off from Boufarik military airport, west of the capital, Algiers.
Witnesses and aviation experts say the pilot appeared to try and crash land in an unpopulated area.
Some reported seeing a wing catch fire before the crash.
In the days or weeks to come, the investigation is expected to shed some light on what caused the accident. (BBC)
