French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Monday that the prospects of finding any survivors from an Air France jet that disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean carrying 228 people were "very small." Sarkozy said that "no hypothesis is excluded" in the search for causes of the disappearance of the Rio to Paris flight. Sarkozy met Monday at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport with some of families of those aboard the plane, including "a mother who lost her son, a fiance who lost her future husband." Sarkozy said, "I told them the truth. The prospects of finding survivors are very small." He said finding the plane "will be very difficult" because the search zone "is immense."
