The death toll from the Algerian military plane crash rose to 257.


A total of 257 people were killed when an Algerian military plane crashed near the country’s capital.
The country’s defense ministry said in a statement that the cause was not clear and had been investigated.
It added that 10 crew members and 247 passengers – mainly soldiers and their relatives – were killed in the accident.
The department added that some of the survivors were being treated in military hospitals.
The plane landed in a field near Algiers Boufarik airport and emergency services were sent to the crash site.
In a video broadcast on Algerian television, black smoke could be seen rising near the highway, and a group of officials could be seen in a field next to the crash site.
On the olive tree you can see the tail of a plane, smoke billowing from the wreckage.
A line of white body bags can be seen on the ground next to the jet plane.

The country’s state news agency says the soviet-designed il-76 will travel about 20 miles (30 kilometers) from Algiers shortly after takeoff and will travel to bechhar in the southwest of the country.
Algeria has experienced some military and civil air disasters in recent years.
In February 2014, a military plane carrying soldiers and their families crashed, killing 77 people.
After the c-130 Hercules jet crashed in the mountainous area of Oum El bouguiar, only one person survived the crash due to bad weather.
