(France 2/CNN) - The first video of the site where an Air Algerie flight crashed in northern Mali has been released.

The images taken by news outlet France 2 show debris from Flight 5017 strewn across the ground.

The passenger plane took off Thursday from Burkina Faso with 116 people on board headed to Algeria. Officials said the plane disappeared from radar less than an hour into the flight after changing its flight path for bad weather.

Crews have found one of the flight recorders. It appeared no one survived the crash.

The cause has not been determined.
