Algeria's national airline, Air Algerie, says it has lost contact with one of its planes flying from Burkina Faso to Algiers across the Sahara.

Flight AH 5017, chartered from Spanish airline Swiftair, was carrying 110 passengers and six crew, it said.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said the plane, which has 50 French citizens aboard, "probably crashed".

Contact was lost about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou, Air Algerie said, as the plane crossed Mali.

The pilot had contacted Niger's control tower in Niamey to change course because of a storm, officials say.


An Air Algerie spokesman quoted by Reuters said the provisional passenger list included 50 French citizens, 24 people from Burkina Faso, eight Lebanese, four Algerians, two from Luxembourg, one Belgian, one Swiss, one Nigerian, one Cameroonian, one Ukrainian and one Romanian.


Although some speculate that bad weather could've been a significant factor, rather than an act of terrorism. The true cause of the crash is still unknown for now.

Was reading about it this morning. Another tragedy, really. And if it's crashed, aren't they crossing the Sahara? Who's going out in a stormy sahara to go get it

Ban planes. Background checks for planes. Yes, for the actual planes.

That's just plane silly.

@Carnivean: They already do 'background checks' for planes obviously.

This is terrible. My speculation is that this is due to visibility issues, not terrorism. If so this is hopefully preventable.

Either way dying in a plane crash is so sad.

I vaguely remember this movie. They're going to build a new plane out of parts of the old plane to fly to safety.

Sometimes threads like this can give you a lift, or they can be a drag. It depends on the thrust of the responses. I guess we'll have to weight and see.

I told a couple of jokes about Malaysian Airlines today.

The first got no response at all, and the second really crashed and burned.

This is sickening to me. Is it really so hard for the countries to just leave each-other alone? There can't be something wrong with peace, they're only picking a fight, it's really upsetting. I hope someone comes in and shows both sides who's boss.

Aircraft and storms need to talk it out and settle their differences like ****ing adults.
