Highlight Story

Dutch and American crash investigators are helping search for clues in the debris field of the airliner that slammed into the desert short of an airport runway in Libya's capital.

Libyan authorities, meanwhile, have determined that one of those found dead at the site was not a passenger but a Libyan rescue worker who responded to the scene and died of a heart attack.

Wednesday's crash killed 103 of those on board the flight from South Africa to the Libyan capital. A 9-year-old Dutch boy who was the sole survivor returned home to the Netherlands on Saturday. His parents and 11-year-old brother perished.

Most of those on board were Dutch tourists. Lead Dutch investigator Dann Noort said on Sunday that work to identify bodies has started.
