Over 150 people were killed in the crash

Over 150 people were killed in the crash

A Pakistan official says recovery workers have found the "black box" flight data recorder from the wreckage of the July 28 plane crash near Islamabad that killed all 152 people aboard.

Ramzan Sajid of the Capital Development Authority, a government agency, said the flight recorder was found but that it is still too early to know what condition it is in.

Investigators hope the black box, which records the plane's operation, will yield clues to why the Airblue flight from Karachi crashed in the mountains during heavy rains while waiting to land at Islamabad airport.
