ISLAMABAD – Recovery workers on Saturday found the "black box" flight data recorder from the wreckage of Pakistan's worst-ever plane crash which killed 152 passengers, though its condition was unclear, a government official said.

The discovery could shed light on why the Airblue Airbus A321 flight crashed Wednesday into the Margalla Hills overlooking the Pakistani capital.

 The "black box" was found following a difficult recovery effort hampered by rain, mud and a lack of proper roads in the heavily forested mountains.

It has been handed to aviation officials, said Ramzan Sajid, a spokesman for the Capital Development Authority, a government agency.
