A French navy vessel has detected the black boxes of a Yemenia Airways plane that crashed into the Indian Ocean near the Comoros Islands on June 30, the ship's captain said Thursday. Comoran and French authorities were still trying to uncover the cause of the crash, which left a 12-year-old girl as the only known survivor out of 153 people aboard. The "Beautemps-Beaupre" hydrographic and oceanographic frigate mapped the sea floor and handed its finding over to Comoran authorities and to the French aviation agency BEA, ship Capt. Marc Reina told The Associated Press. "A cartography has been completed and the recorders have been pinpointed," Reina said.
