Rescuers are still searching for signs of an Air France jet which disappeared off the coast of Brazil yesterday. The flight was en route from Brazil to France and was carrying 228 people from all over the world.
Among the missing passengers are three Norwegians and one individual each from Denmark, Iceland and Sweden.
The whereabouts of the plane is still unknown, although search planes in the area have reported seeing unidentified debris in the sea.
According to an Air France spokesman, the plane almost certainly crashed and no survivors should be expected.
“Air France expresses its deepest sympathy to the relatives and friends of the passengers and crew who were on board this flight,” the airline said in a statement on its website.
