I guess a bunch of Arab Muslims scattered across an ocean don't matter as much as the French and Brazilians.
Lets take a look at some websites!
French Transport Minister Dominique Bussereau told French radio the weather rather than the plane itself was the likely problem.
"They are saying the plane was making its approach, that it pulled out of the approach and then tried another approach that went wrong," he told French radio
Moroni is a notoriously difficult airfield to fly into, especially at night. The airport is at sea-level on the West side of a skinny island, with a 7700' mountain just to the southeast of it and a 3600' one to the northeast..
There is no published approach to Rwy 20, just an VOR/DME/ILS for 02.
Easy to get disoriented at night as there are very few ground lights, a true 'black-hole' with part of it being the volcano mentioned.
Think SAA had a daylight-only policy for Moroni. No need to look further than CFIT and/or disorientation for this one IMHO.
Another sad day for us all

It should recieve as much attention but it won't. People will not think that rich Arabs would be riding on that flight. Most people do not think Arabs are a part of the NWO.
"We still do not know the nationality or the gender of the person rescued. We have just learned from the Comoros that one person was rescued," Yemenia Airways' Mohammad al Sumairi said. But hospital sources revealed the survivor was a child.
