Seventy-eight people have been killed in a Moroccan military aircraft crash into a mountain in the south of the country, the army says.

The army said three other people were severely wounded in the crash, in what is thought to be one of Morocco’s deadliest air disasters in years.

The C-130 Hercules aircraft crashed near Guelmim, just north of the disputed Western Sahara territory.

The army blames the accident on poor weather.

A local resident told Reuters news agency there was thick fog at the time of the crash.

The plane was travelling from Dakhla, in the Western Sahara, to Kinitra in northern Morocco. FIND MORE:
