The Algerian defense ministry confirmed Friday that an Algerian military aircraft with six people on board has crashed in Lozere, France.

The official APS news agency quoted the ministry's statement as saying that a CASA 295 aircraft, carrying home five military crew and one representative of the Central Bank of Algeria, crashed at around 3:45 p.m. local time (1445 GMT) in the locality of Lozere, 100 km north of the province of Montpellier.

Algerian cargo plane crashes in France

Rescue workers have found four bodies amid the wreckage of an Algerian military cargo plane that was carrying six people from Paris to Algiers when it went down in flames in a mountainous region of southern France.

The twin-engine CASA C-295 plane was carrying a cargo of banknote paper for the Bank of Algeria, according to a source familiar with the matter.

One body was found in the pilot's seat and three others in the cabin, which had become separated from the front of the plane, said Samuel Finielz, a prosecutor from Mende in the Lozere department, on Friday.

Emergency workers are still searching for the other two bodies after extinguishing a fire in the wreckage, which burned for about an hour after crashing.

The plane had left Algiers early on Friday with five military officials and a representative from the Bank of Algeria on board, according to an Algerian military statement cited by the APS news agency.

The military said the plane was delivering equipment from France for the Bank of Algeria. It was on its way back to north Africa when the crash occurred.

Around 90 firefighters attended the scene of the crash in a forest clearing near the village of Trelans, the fire service said.

One witness said he thought he had seen a parachute in the sky, but a source close to the investigation said the object was in fact a piece of cabin.

It's the second incident involving a military aircraft in the south of France in recent months.

In July, a Cougar helicopter carrying six Eurocopter workers crashed, killing all on board.
