    Swiss Le Temps reports that there seems to be no survivors. Weather being seen as the most probable reason for the crash. Airplane wreck and debries seem to be concentrated in one area. French Amry already on the ground to check and secure the area. About 100 French soldiers, in 30 vehicles have arrived on the ground. Wreckage was found by a Reaper drone.

    Le Temps is also stating that some experts believe there could have been a bomb on-board. Investigation will reveal more.
