PARIS — The remains of the 118 victims from the Algerian passenger jet that went down in Mali last week have been “pulverized,” making identification extremely difficult, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Monday.
(GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip) — Israeli aircraft, tanks and navy gunboats targeted symbols of Hamas control in Gaza City early Tuesday in the heaviest night of bombardment in three weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of a “prolonged” campaign in Gaza.
The overnight strikes hit the home of the top Hamas leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, as well as government offices and the headquarters of the Hamas satellite TV station.
Israeli forces fired hundreds of flares that turned the night sky bright orange.
Shortly before ground controllers lost contact with Air Algerie Flight 5017, the airliner’s crew requested to abandon its journey to Algiers and head back to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, eyeing foul weather on the radar.
The plane crashed in a remote corner of Mali shortly thereafter, killing all 118 passengers and crew members onboard.
Its black box flight recorders arrived in Paris on Monday, AFP reports, offering investigators insight into the July 24 tragedy — the third airline disaster in just over a week, coming after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over the Ukraine and the unsuccessful landing of TransAsia Airways Flight 222 in Taiwan.
Authorities had previously known that the Air Algerie plane requested a change of route but not a return to its point of origin.
