NOTICIAS R7 (TRANSLATED)-- 

 Amid the confusion about the time of the disappearance, an official from the Algerian civil aviation reported that the last contact with the plane was at 22.55, down over the city of Gao, Mali. But aviation authorities in Burkina Faso said they had control of the plane to the tower of Niamey, Niger, at 22h38. They said they had lost contact with the aircraft shortly after 0h30.
The Ouedrago Minister of Burkina Faso, said the plane asked the control tower in Niamey to change course at 22h38 because of a storm in the Sahara desert. However, a source in the control of Niamey, who declined to be identified, tower said they were not contacted by plane, you should, as expected, have flown over Mali.




AL ARABIYA--
 

“The plane was not far from the Algerian frontier when the crew was asked to make a detour because of poor visibility and to prevent the risk of collision with another aircraft on the Algiers-Bamako route,” the Air Algerie source said.

“Contact was lost after the change of course.”



 
 SITREP: 
Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal said on Algerian state television said that 10 minutes before disappearing, it was in contact with air traffic controllers in Gao, a city essentially under the control of the Malian government, though it has seen lingering separatist violence.
The plane had been missing for hours before the news was made public. It wasn't immediately clear why airline or government officials didn't make it public earlier.
Air Algerie Flight 5017 was being operated by Spanish airline Swiftair, the company said in a statement. The Spanish pilots' union said the plane belonged to Swiftair.
The flight path of the plane from Ouagadougou to Algiers wasn't immediately clear. Ouagadougou is in a nearly straight line south of Algiers, passing over Mali where unrest continues in the north.

ALGIERS  (OURWINDSOR.CA)--French Transport Minister Frederic Cuvillier said the Air Algerie flight vanished over northern Mali. He spoke Thursday from a crisis centre set up in the French Foreign Ministry. Cuvillier didn't specify exactly where the plane disappeared over Mali, or whether it was in an area controlled by rebels.

But Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal said on Algerian state television said that 10 minutes before disappearing, it was in contact with air traffic controllers in Gao, a city essentially under the control of the Malian government, though it has seen lingering separatist violence.

The plane had been missing for hours before the news was made public. It wasn't immediately clear why airline or government officials didn't make it public earlier.
