The leader of France's Senate, Gerard Larcher, throws a wreath into Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro to honor the 228 people killed May 31 when an Air France jet plunged into the Atlantic. "In the navy tradition, I am going to throw flowers into the sea in homage of those lost," he told reporters before heading out into the bay. He said he was visiting Brazil to show his gratitude to Brazilian authorities for the way they handled the disaster and the search for bodies and debris from the plane.
