    An Algerian military plane fell from the sky soon after taking off from one of the country's airbases on April 11, leaving hundreds of individuals dead, according to local media.

    A video showing the immediate aftermath of the plane crash has been published on YouTube, capturing people gathering around what appears to be the fuselage of the aircraft. The crash killed 257 people, according to the defense ministry. The incident took place some 50 kilometers to the south of the country's capital after the plane — an Il-76 — left the Boufarik airbase, according to the Alg24 news website. Fourteen medical vehicles have been dispatched to the scene.
