    Lebanese army search teams said on Wednesday they had retrieved the second "black box" containing the flight recorder.

    The jets usually have two "black boxes", one which records the flight data and the other which registers what goes on in the cockpit.

    Divers have also found several human body parts and taken them to Beirut Hospital for DNA tests.

    So far some 33 bodies have been recovered from the sea.
