Flight 447 searchers detect signals, but not black boxes

A French official says sounds detected by search teams in the Atlantic depths are not those of Flight 447's black boxes. The aide to France's top transport official, Jean-Louis Borloo, said Tuesday the "black boxes have not been detected." She said that French military ships searching in the area where the plane crashed had "heard sounds," but that those were not signals from the flight's voice or data recorders. Le Monde had reported earlier that the French military has detected a faint signal from the black boxes of the plane, which crashed in the Atlantic in late May.
