An Algerian military transport plane has crashed in the north-east of the country, killing all but one of the 78 people on board.

The Hercules C-130 crashed into a mountain in Oum al-Bouaghi province, en route to Constantine, in bad weather conditions.

One survivor is being treated for head injuries.

The government and military say 78 people were on board - not 103 as reported by officials and local media.
