158 were killed in Saturday's air crash - the worst India has seen in over a decade. Only eight survived, after an Air India Boeing 737-800 overshot a hilltop runway in Mangalore and plunged over a cliff, officials said.

Investigators are sifting through the rubble of the crash on Sunday, looking for "black boxes," cockpit voice and flight data recorders, which are crucial for determining what went wrong with the aircraft as it came for landing after a flight from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
