A military aircraft crashed in Algeria's mountainous northeast on Tuesday killing all 103 people on board, a security source said, in what would be its deadliest air disaster since independence five decades ago.The plane was travelling from the desert garrison town of Tamanrasset in the deep south, and crashed into Mount Djebel Fertas in the Oum El Bouaghi region, official media quoted Colonel Bouguern as saying.The city lies 1,500 kilometres (930 miles) from Constantine, and was the site of the last major plane crash in Algeria, in March 2003 .In December 2012, two military jets conducting routine training operations collided in mid air near Tlemcen, in Algeria's northwest, killing the pilots of both planes.
