Lebanon's marine commandos on Sunday recovered the black box of the Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed into the Mediterranean in January, a Lebanese army officer said.




The Boeing 737 crashed Jan. 25 minutes after takeoff from Beirut during a fierce thunderstorm. All 90 people on board died.




Analyzing data stored in the black box is critical to determining the cause of the crash.




The officer said the black box was "carefully" pulled out and taken Sunday to a Lebanese naval base in Beirut.
