French Navy to Join Search for Bodies, Jet Wreckage

July 1 (Bloomberg) -- The French navy will join the search for wreckage and bodies in the Indian Ocean today after a Yemeni Airbus with 153 people on board crashed off the Comoros Islands.

A teenage girl pulled from the water yesterday is the only known survivor, the Yemeni Civil Aviation Authority said, adding five bodies and debris from the downed A310 have been located.

Sixty-six French nationals were on the flight and President Nicolas Sarkozy, who will attend a ceremony tomorrow at a Paris mosque to honor the victims, dispatched airplanes and ships to help with the search.
