Air Algerie AH5017 crash investigators have said that it will be "very difficult to find all the bodies."
Speaking to reporters, General Gilbert Diendere, presidential aide and head of the crisis committee said:
There are French troops on site to secure a perimeter, to allow eventual investigators.
Concerning the bodies, you heard earlier (from the crisis committee meeting), it is very difficult because the bodies are scattered and I think it will be very, very difficult to find all the bodies.
All 118 passengers and crew were killed after the plane went down in the West African state of Mali.
