Story Text: Sixty-two Dutch passengers were on board a jet which crashed on Wednesday (May 12) at Tripoli airport killing 103 people, an executive with the Libyan airline that operated the plane said.
The only survivor was a young Dutch boy, who is in intensive care in a Tripoli hospital. Doctors say he is in a stable condition.
Recovery workers and investigators were examining the wreckage of the plane which crashed as it attempted to land.
Saleh Ali Saleh, head of Afriqiyah Airways' legal department, said those on board also included two German nationals, one each from the Philippines and Zimbabwe, and at least 13 Libyan citizens. He said he did not have a complete list of all those on board.
The Airbus A330-200, which had been in service only since September, was flying from Johannesburg to the Libyan capital when it crashed just short of the runway around 6 a.m. (0400 GMT), the airline and planemaker said.
Libyan Transport Minister Mohamed Zidan said the plane had not been subject to a terrorist attack.
