Voice recorder recovered from Pakistan air disaster

A Pakistan International Airlines spokesman said on Thursday (May 28) that search teams had recovered the cockpit voice recorder from the fated jet which crashed last week, killing 97 people.

The Airbus A320 came down in a crowded residential district of Karachi.

Only two people survived.

The flight data recorder had previously been found.

Pakistani officials and Airbus investigators are collecting evidence at the site as they try to determine the cause of the country's worst airline disaster in years.

Under international aviation rules, French investigators from the French air safety investigation authority for civil aviation - have joined the probe as the jet was designed in France.

The BEA said in a statement the two recorders would be examined at its laboratory just outside Paris.
