Algerian Airline Carrying 110 Passengers "Missing"


Algeria's national airline says it has lost contact with a plane carrying 110 passengers and six crew after it disappeared off the radar on a flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers.
Air navigation services lost track of the Swiftair MD-83 around 50 minutes into the flight after the crew reportedly asked to change course due to a thunderstorm.
The plane, which is operated by Air Algerie, was last picked up on radar at 1.55am GMT and should have landed in the Algerian capital around three hours later.
Among the passengers were 50 French citizens, the airline's representative in Burkina Faso told a news conference in Ouagadougou, where the plane took off.
There were also Spanish nationals on board, including all of its six crew.
