Ten members of the same family were among the 118 victims of the Air Algerie crash which happened in Mali.
Details of many of those killed when flight AH5017 came down in the desert in Mali were released on Friday. Humanitarian workers, tourists and expatriates were among those flying from Burkina Faso, where the plane left for Algiers in the early hours of Thursday. Many were to meet connecting flights to Europe.
Among the 118 victims, 54 were French and 10 of them were from the same Family.
Ten members spanning three generations of the Reynaud family from the Rhône Alpes region of France died in the crash.
Michel Reynaud, his former wife, their two sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren were all on flight AH5017. The group had been attending a family wedding in Burkina Faso.
A military drone identified the crash site at Gossi, near the Burkina Fasoborder, and soon after French forces in the area secured the zone and confirmed there were no survivors.
The wreckage of the aircraft, much of it in small pieces, was spread over a relatively small area and one of the plane’s flight recorders was found quickly and sent for examination. France has also sent an air investigation team to the scene.
