Putting the mystery of the crashed aircraft in Malta at rest, the French Le Monde journal confirmed that three of the officials on board were French intelligence (DGSI) heading to Libya.

The French Defense Minister, on the other hand, said three killed officials were French Defense Ministry personnel.

However, till ow the French government and media have not said the exact mission those intelligence agents were carrying out and have not said where exactly they were heading to.

The light aircraft crashed after taking off from Malta’s main airport early on Monday morning, killing all five people on board, officials there said, in the island nation’s worst peacetime air accident.
