French soldiers find one of two black boxes for Air Algerie flight AH5017 in northern Mali. The box is sent to Gao, government-controlled city in northern Mali, where remains will be sent for identification before being repatriated. French President Francois Hollande:
There are hypotheses, notably weather-related, but we don’t rule out anything because we want to know what happened. What we know is that the debris is concentrated in a limited space, but it is too soon to draw conclusions.
