The French aviation agency on Sunday said a submarine scouring the Indian Ocean has picked up signal beacons of the two black boxes of a Yemenia Airways flight that crashed off the Comoros Islands on Tuesday. The one-line statement did not indicate when the cockpit voice recorders in the black boxes and the flight date of the Airbus A310 jet might be recovered. A 12-year-old girl, Bahia Bakari, is the only survivor of Tuesday's early morning crash that killed 152 people on the flight from Paris to Moroni, the capital of the Comoros islands. A Yemeni aviation committee said Saturday that divers have recovered pieces of the fuselage of the Airbus 310 and that Yemeni, French and Comoran officials listened to the communication between the control tower and the flight before it went down, but gave no further details.
