July 26 , 2014
French forces found a flight recorder from the site of the crashed Air Algerie plane in Mali but no survivors, Francoise Hollande, France’s president, has said.
“I share the pain of the families, who are going through terrible hardship,” he said.
More than 50 French nationals were on board Flight 5017, which vanished from radar screens 50 minutes after takeoff on Thursday from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. The aircraft was bound for Algiers’ Houari Boumediene Airport.
The cause of the crash is not yet known.
