MORONI, Comoros (AP) - Authorities say they have recovered the
second of two black boxes from a Yemenia Airways flight that crashed into the Indian Ocean in June with 153 people aboard.
Col. Ismael Daho in charge of the Comoran crisis unit set up to deal with the crash says the plane's voice recorder was recovered Saturday. The data recorder was recovered on Friday.
Red Cross co-ordinator Abdourhamane Bacari says teams will continue to work for another two weeks to try to bring up wreckage
and look for more bodies and luggage. Around 37 bodies have been
recovered so far.
A teenage girl was the only survivor of Yemenia Flight 626, which was flying from Paris to Moroni via Yemen.
