An Algerian military aircraft crashed late on Wednesday February 20th during a training flight, killing two people on board, Reuters reported.

The Algerian defense ministry said in a statement on Thursday February 21st that the Russian SU 24 aircraft crashed in an inhabited agricultural area in the northern Algerian province of Tiaret.

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.
