U.N. finds second black box at Air Algerie crash site

The United Nations said on Saturday that its experts located the second black box from the Air Algerie flight that crashed in the West African country of Mali earlier this week.

Initial evidence taken from the remote crash site indicates that the aircraft broke apart when it crashed early Thursday morning, making an attack appear unlikely.

The death toll of 118 includes 54 French citizens.

The first of the black box recorders was found on Friday and would be analyzed, according to French President Francois Hollande. Hollande plans to meet family members of victims later on Saturday.
