CAIRO: The black box that was aboard the Russian aircraft crashed Saturday over Sinai was found at the crash site, Egypt’s state-run T.V announced, citing a statement of the Egyptian Civil Aviation Ministry.
Bodies of at least 100 people, including five children, have been also found at the crash site, member of the Egyptian rescue team told Reuters.
Civil Aviation Minister Hossam Kemal said it was too early to determine the cause of the crash ruling the plane had been shot down or blown up.
