2nd black box of Algerian plane found

  • The second flight data recorder from Air Algerie Flight 5017 which crashed in Mali has been recovered.

    The cause of the crash in north Africa that killed at least 116 passengers and crew remains uncertain. More than 50 victims were French nationals.

    French President Francois Hollande has declared three days of mourning in memory of the victims.

    The aircraft vanished from radar screens less than an hour after take-off, and had reportedly changed its path because of bad weather. French forensic experts are helping in the investigation.
