At least 78 people have been killed in a Moroccan military aircraft crash in the south of the country, the Morrocan army has said in a statement.
The army said three other people were severely wounded in the crash, in what is thought to be Morocco's deadliest air disaster in decades.
The C-130 Hercules aircraft crashed in Guelmine, just north of the disputed Western Sahara territory.
The C-130 is said to be widely used in the Sahara.
An official at the interior ministry has told the AFP news agency that troops and their families were carried on this type of plane.
"Above all, it was the fog and bad weather conditions that are believed to be behind this accident. But for the moment, we don't have enough information," the source said.
