Rescuers have started to recover bodies after a plane flying from Paris to
the Comoros islands crashed in the Indian Ocean with more than 150 people
on board, airline officials said today.


"We still do not have information about the reason behind the crash or
survivors," Mohammad al-Sumairi, an official from Yemenia Air told
Reuters. "The weather conditions were rough; strong wind and high seas.
The wind speed recorded on land at the airport was 61km an hour. There
could be other factors," he said.


Most of the passengers on the Yemenia Air Airbus 310 were believed to be
Comoros residents returning from Paris. The plane had stopped off in the
Yemeni capital, Sana'a, on the way to Moroni, the capital on the main
island of the Comoros archipelago.


A Yemenia Air official said the plane, which authorities believe crashed
in the early hours, had 142 passengers and 11 crew members on board.

Lost Contact with Control Tower

A United Nations official at the airport, who declined to be named, said
the control tower had received notification the plane was coming into
land, and then lost contact with it.

It is believed that the plane crashed near Mitsamiouli, a town on the main
island Grand Comore said Indi Nanthoim vice-president of Comoros.

"We still do not have information about the reason behind the crash or
survivors," said Mohammad al-Sumairi, deputy general manager for Yemenia
operations. Yemenia Air is 51 % owned by the Yemeni government and 49%
owned by the Saudi Arabian government.

"The weather conditions were rough; strong wind and high seas. The wind
speed recorded on land at the airport was 61 km an hour. There could be
other factors," Yemenia official Mohammad al-Sumairi said.

A search is under way, with the French military assisting with the
operation.
