Ethiopian jet's 2nd black box retrieved from sea

By ZEINA KARAM (AP)


BEIRUT — A senior Lebanese security official says search teams have retrieved the second black box belonging to the
Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last month.
The Boeing 737 crashed on January 25, just minutes after takeoff from Beirut during a fierce thunderstorm.
All 90 people on board died.
Passenger jets carry two black boxes — a data flight recorder and a cockpit voice recorder.

The data flight recorder was retrieved on Sunday and flown to France for analysis.
The security official says the cockpit voice recorder was retrieved Wednesday.

He says it would also be flown to Paris.The official spoke on condition of anonymity because

he was not authorized to give official statements to the media.
