UPDATE: Plane Crash In Algeria

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) -- A retired Algerian intelligence official says the sole survivor of an Algerian plane crash is a soldier who is now being treated for head injuries at a military hospital in Algiers.

The former official said the male soldier was transferred to the capital after being treated locally in eastern Algeria where the military transport crashed Tuesday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Algerian officials say 77 other people were killed in the crash of the C-130 Hercules military transport, including some women and children.
