According to the defence ministry, the Russian-made Sukhoi SU-24 plane went down in an uninhabited farming area in the province of Tiaret, around 250 kilometres (155 miles) southwest of Algiers.

The pilot and co-pilot were killed during the “night-time training flight”, it said, adding that it was investigating the causes of the accident.

It was the first such incident since the country’s worst military plane crash that killed 257 people in April last year at a military base near Algiers.
