France's Foreign Minister has said the Air Algerie passenger plane which disappeared over Mali has still not been found.
Laurent Fabius said two French Mirage warplanes are scouring the desert area of the northwestern African country for the aircraft, which is believed to have crashed in bad weather.
"Despite intensive search efforts no trace of the aircraft has yet been found," Mr Fabius told journalists in Paris. "The plane probably crashed."
He said 51 of the 116 people on board the flight were French nationals, with many on board due to join connecting services to airports across France.
