The identities of the nine Chinese nationals on board Air France flight 447 have been confirmed.

Six of the victims worked for Benxi Iron and Steel Group, including the vice manager of the Group. They were on a business scouting trip in Brazil.

The two companies and the Academy have set up emergency work teams to comfort the employees' family members and help them travel to France.
