Television footage showed crowds and emergency vehicles massing around the smoking and flaming wreckage near Boufarik airport southwest of Algiers.

  • U.N. Chief Lashes World Leaders Over Syria

    UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon took te world stage for one last time on Monday. Syria was the theme of his unleashed years of pent-up anger at leaders who keep "feeding the war machine" in the country.

The U.N. chief told presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and ministers at the opening of General Assembly's annual ministerial meeting Tuesday that "powerful patrons" on both sides in the years-long Syrian conflict "have blood on their hands." He said, "Present in this hall today are representatives of governments that have ignored, facilitated, funded, participated in or even planned and carried out atrocities inflicted by all sides of the Syria conflict against Syrian civilians." He added, "Many groups have killed innocent civilians — none more so than the government of Syria, which continues to barrel bomb neighborhoods and systematically torture thousands of detainees."
