The wreckage of the Air Algerie plane that went missing has been found in Mali, a Burkina Faso official says.
General Gilbert Diendere says the wreckage was located about 31 miles from the border of Burkina Faso near the village of Boulikessi in Mali.
He is a close aide to President Blaise Compaore and head of the crisis committee set up to co-ordinate research for the plane that vanished Thursday in a rainstorm over northern Mali.
He says searchers found human remains and burned and scattered plane wreckage.
