Comoros: Child rescued alive in Airbus 310 crash

CAIRO (AP) -- A Comoros police official says a child has been rescued alive from the sea in the Airbus 310 crash off the Indian Ocean island.

Immigrations officer with the Comoros operations, Rachida Abdullah, says a toddler was rescued from the crash site Tuesday.

Abdullah told The Associated Press that three bodies have also been retrieved, along with debris from the plane, but that no other survivors have been recovered so far.

She said the rescue and search operation is going on since 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The Yemeni Airbus 310 crashed with 142 passengers and a crew of 11 Yemenis on board before landing in Moroni, on the main island of Grand Comore, early on Tuesday.

Most of the passengers were from Comoros, returning from Paris. Sixty-six on board were French nationals.
