French President François Hollande said Friday there were no survivors from the Air Algérie plane that crashed with 118 people on board in Mali early Thursday. One of the black boxes of flight AH 5017 from Burkina Faso to Algeria has been recovered.

• The wreckage of flight AH5017 was spotted late on Thursday in Mali by a French military drone. It crashed just after passing the Burkinabe border as it headed north to Algiers, and was carrying 118 people, including 54 French citizens.
• Around 200 French soldiers are guarding the crash site, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said.
• French Transport Minister Frédéric Cuvillier said on Friday he believed bad weather was a more likely culprit than a terrorist attack.
