Missing plane out of fuel by now - French minister

PARIS, June 1 (Reuters) - An Air France passenger jet that went missing during a flight from Brazil to France with 228 on board would have run out of fuel by now, a senior French minister said on Monday.

“By now it would be beyond its kerosene reserves so unfortunately we must now envisage the most tragic scenario,” said Jean-Louis Borloo, the second most senior figure in the cabinet.

Borloo told France Info radio that the plane had disappeared from military as well as civilian radar screens. (Reporting by Estelle Shirbon; editing by Crispian Balmer)
