Coverage of the third plane crash in one week - from France, Algeria and Burkina Faso

The papers are awash in coverage of the Algerian plane crash – the third international plane disaster in just one week.

Faso.net of Burkina Faso reports on the frenetic activity in Ouagadougou among government ministers, security services and flight experts in the early hours of Thursday morning, when news broke of Flight AH 5017.

Algeria’s TSA features an interview with an aeronautics specialist who discounts the theories that the flight AH 5017 was brought down by bad weather. He believes it could have been a technical fault or a terrorist attack.

Canada’s Toronto Star reports on the five Canadians who perished in the crash, and the Seattle Times explains shows that 2014 is already the deadliest year for flights in more than a decade.
