Around 60 Brazilians on board missing plane-source
BRASILIA, June 1 |
BRASILIA, June 1 (Reuters) - Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was notified that around 60 Brazilians were on board the Air France flight that went missing over the Atlantic Ocean, a presidential aide told Reuters on Monday.
The aide, who was traveling with Lula on a state visit in El Salvador, spoke on condition of anonymity because the passenger list has yet to be made public.
The Airbus jetliner operated by Air France (AIRF.PA), which was en route to Paris from Rio de Janeiro, was carrying 228 people when it apparently crashed into the Atlantic. (Reporting by Natuza Nery, Writing by Todd Benson)
