PARIS (AP) - France's foreign minister says the Air Algerie flight that has gone missing over Mali has "probably crashed."
   
Laurent Fabius says "no trace" of the plane has been found. Two French fighter jets are among aircraft scouring the rugged north of Mali for the MD-83 that was traveling from the Burkina Faso capital of Ouagadougou to Algiers, the Algerian capital.
   
About half of the passengers were French.
