France’s transportation minister said that French forces have found no evidence of an Airbus A330 airplane that vanished over the Atlantic and urged “extreme prudence” about suspected debris fished from the ocean.

Dominique Bussereau said he regretted that an announcement by Brazilian teams that they had recovered plane debris from Air France flight 447 turned out to be false.

Bussereau said the search must continue and stressed that the priority is finding the flight recorders. The plane went down Sunday night with 228 people aboard.

Meanwhile, France launched a manslaughter probe to investigate whether anyone was responsible for the crash of the jet, officials said.

Speed an issue

A probe into the crash has shown that speeds measured by the plane’s instruments were inconsistent, the French air safety investigation agency said on Friday.
