Authorities say a flight operated by Air Algerie carrying 110 passengers and a crew of six has disappeared from the radar on a flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers in northwest Africa.
The official Algerian news agency said air navigation services lost track of the Swiftair plane 50 minutes after takeoff at approximately 8:55 p.m. CST. Flight AH5017 had been missing for hours before news was made public.
The plane's flight path passes over Mali, where unrest continues in the north. Swiftair, the private Spanish airline, confirmed that 116 people were aboard.
