    Libya Plane Crash Kills 105, Dutch Child Survives

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A Libyan Airbus crashed when trying to land at Tripoli airport early on Wednesday, killing 103 passengers and crew aboard, but a Dutch child survived, Libyan officials said.

    Libya's Afriqiyah airline said it operated the plane, which was flying from Johannesburg in South Africa to Tripoli. Planemaker Airbus said the jet was an A330-200 and the firm would help authorities with their investigation.

    "All of the passengers and crew died except for one child," a Libyan security source told Reuters at Tripoli airport. "There were 93 passengers and 11 crew on board."

    Very sad news but a remarkable story. I feel sad for the boy knowing it is possible his entire family died in the crash; that could make for a very difficult life.
