    A Libyan aircraft has crashed while attempting to land at Tripoli airport, leaving an eight-year-old Dutch boy as the sole survivor. 

    The Airbus A330, with 104 people onboard, was on a regular flight from Johannesburg when it crashed in a field short of Tripoli airport's runway.

    Libyan officials said they had recovered black boxes from the debris and are now trying to figure out what went wrong.
