Algiers, July 26 IANS | 2 months ago

Parents of Air Algerie's flight AH-5017 crash victims expressed anger over how the company was releasing information about the accident in which no one survived.


"The company has played a lot with our feelings by delaying in giving us information," a Burkina Faso human rights activist Halidou Ouedraogo who lost a daughter in the crash said.

Ouedraogo lamented that there was "too much contradictions" in the information given to passengers' parents by Air Algerie, Xinhua reported.

Flight AH5017, flying from Burkina Faso's capital Ouagadougou to Algiers, crashed Thursday morning in northern Mali with 116 people on board.

None of the passengers from 16 nationalities survived.

"My brother died in that crash. They (Air Algerie) did not communicate any information and we still do not know what we shall do," Kam Herve Magloire said.

A representative of a Luxembourg NGO, Pierre Nikiema, who lost his boss in the accident, said that Air Algerie was not taking its work "seriously".

On Friday, Burkina Faso authorities declared a two-day national mourning to honour the crash victims.
