Protestors continue to block check-in desks for Yemenia Airways flights out of Paris’ Roissy airport, claiming lax safety regulations are to blame for Tuesday’s crash near the Comoros islands.
They want the airline to be put on a black list that will stop it from flying. One Comoran said the demonstrators were asking French authorities to help by setting up Air France flights to the Comoros for at least the next three months, as in the holiday season French tourists should be able to fly in good conditions. There is still no sign of the plane or 152 passengers and crew who are highly unlikely to have survived. Search teams are concentrating on an area where there is a large presence of sharks and the smell of kerosene.
