France's air crash authority will publish an interim report in December on the possible causes of a June fatal crash by an Air France plane, it said on Monday.


Flight AF447, an Airbus A330, crashed into the Atlantic ocean, en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, on June 1, killing 228 people. The causes of the accident and its exact location remain unknown.
