PARIS, Nov 16 (AFP) - The body of a stowaway has been found in the undercarriage of an Air France plane travelling from Mali to Paris, the French carrier said on Tuesday.

"A body was found today by Air France personnel in the undercarriage of an Airbus 330 at the time of its inspection," a spokesman of the company told AFP.

"The last flight by this plane was from Bamako to Paris," he said.

Identity papers were found on the body and French authorities were investigating how he got into the plane, judicial sources said.

Although bodies of would-be immigrants often make several trips before being found, the sources said that, as the body was neither frozen nor in a state of decomposition, this one had only made one trip.
