    Maybe we should think up a method to track all flights on earth, maybe from towers in airports, or perhaps from objects orbiting the planet...

    Grim. Hopefully it hasn't crashed or been shot down over Mali.

    There are some tweets on Twitter that are saying it's crashed in Niger. Nothing official yet though.

    12:24: Alex Duval Smith, BBC News, Mali

    Contact is believed to have been lost between Gao and Tessalit in north-eastern Mali. The most probable scenario at the moment is that the plane came down in bad weather. Sandstorms in the desert would account for very poor visibility. However, it is possible that it was shot down as armed groups do operate in the area.

    French and UN troops in northern Mali say they understand the plane came down between the north-eastern towns of Gao and Tessalit. The Nigerian general commanding 1,200 UN troops in Timbuktu said work was only just beginning on trying to trace the aircraft. General Koko Essien told the BBC the area leading up to the Algerian border was vast and sparsely populated. Brigadier General Essien said the weather had been bad in the region overnight.
