Black box of crashed Yemeni plane located
Black box of the crashed Yemini plane, which was flying from Yemen's capital Sanaa to the Comoros islands, has been found. Except one teenage girl, who was rescued hours after crash, remaining 152 people on board are feared to have perished
RESCUERS HAVE located one of the black box of the Yemeni plane, which went down in the Indian Ocean on Tuesday (June 30). The plane was flying from Yemen's capital Sanaa to the Comoros islands but crashed down due to bad weather. 

A government spokesperson said that the radio signal of the black box was picked up by an aerial petrol, 40 km from Grand Comore. 

Except one teenage girl, who was rescued hours after crash, remaining 152 people on board are feared to have perished. Identified as Baya Bakari, the girl is said to be out of danger and recovering well after the accident. 

Ironically, the aircraft had been banned from entering France after authorities had found technical faults in the plane. Most of the passengers had boarded the ill fated plane in Saana after they arrived from Paris or Marseille on another Yemenia aircraft. 

A French vessel has been pressed into the service to search for the black box. Meanwhile, officials said that chances of finding a survivor were very slim.
