104 Killed in Plane Crash at Tripoli Airport, 1 Survivor

A Libyan Afriqiyah Airways plane with 104 people on board crashed Wednesday on approach to Tripoli’s airport, killing at least 96 people. A 10-year-old Dutch boy was the only known survivor, Libya’s transport minister said.

Libyan state television showed a large field scattered with small and large pieces of plane debris and dozens of police and rescue workers with surgical masks and gloves, some of them carrying at least one body away. They gathered small personal items such as wallets and cell phones from the wreckage.
