pejyel (1275304) writes "PARIS (AFP) - An Airbus A330-200 operated by Yemen's state carrier Yemenia Air that took off from Paris has disappeared between Yemen and Comoros with 147 passengers on board, an airport source said.

The plane left Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport on Monday and traveled to Marseille and then Sanaa in Yemen before heading towards Moroni.

The aircraft — which was due to have landed in the capital of the Indian Ocean archipelago at 2300 GMT Monday — disappeared from radar screens, said the airport source.

A crisis task force was set up at Charles de Gaulle airport early Tuesday.

(Another Airbus A330 aircraft, crashed into the Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and France on June 1 with 228 people on board. There were no survivors.)

Other sources confirm the plane crashed."
