COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An attorney says the fired director of Ohio State University's celebrated marching band has become a scapegoat for behavior that occurred before his leadership and he'll fight to clear his name.
All people on board an Air Algerie passenger plane that crashed in Mali died in the tragedy, including several families that were wiped out, France announced Friday. "Sadly, there are no survivors," President Francois Hollande said on television a day after the plane went down. There were 116 or 118 people on board, according to conflicting tolls given by the carrier and French authorities. The occupants included 54 French citizens, some of them dual nationals, as well as people from Burkina Faso, Lebanon, Algeria, Spain, Canada, Germany and Luxembourg.
