President Nazarbayev extends condolences to Algerian President over plane crash

More than 200 people are believed dead after an Algerian military plane crashed Wednesday morning

In 2014, an Algerian military transport plane carrying 77 people crashed into a mountain in the northeastern province of Oum El Bouaghi.

The incident happened shortly after the plane took off from a military airport near the capital Algiers, but reasons for the crash is not clear.

Algeria's Defense Ministry said 247 passengers and 10 crew died in the nation's worst ever aviation disaster.

Algeria President Abdelaziz Bouteflika declared three days of national mourning and prayers for the dead on Friday.

Most of those on board were army members and their families, it said.


The dead included 10 crew members.

The Polisario Front, an Algerian-backed movement that seeks independence from Morocco for the Western Sahara region, said 30 of its people were among those killed.

The victims' bodies have been transported to the Algerian army's central hospital for identification.

Mariah Coogan is seen in a video posted to social media from a small plane that later crashed in Scottsdale, Arizona, on April 9, 2018. It said most of the victims are soldiers and their relatives. Two military planes collided mid-flight in December 2012 during a training exercise in Tlemcen, in the far west of the country, killing the pilots of both planes. One farmer said some passengers jumped out of the aircraft sooner than the crash, in response to the Related Press. Pro-Russian rebels are widely accused of shooting the plane down using a surface-to-air missile but they deny responsibility.

During a press conference on April. 10, NTSB investigator Eliott Simpson, told reporters that they are looking into whether or not the plane was fit for six people. Authorities say they've identified the six people killed in the fiery crash of a small plane on a golf course in a Phoenix suburb. There was a single survivor.
