A signal from the black boxes of the Yemenia airliner that crashed off the Comoros last week has been detected, Comoran and French investigators said on Sunday.
"Investigators from the BEA have detected a signal from the flight recorders," said Comoran lead investigator Ali Abdou Mohamed in a statement received in Paris.
A spokeswoman from the French BEA accident investigation agency confirmed to AFP that a signal had been picked up.
The Yemenia Airways Airbus A310 crashed on Tuesday in the Indian Ocean as it was approaching for landing on the Comoro Islands. All but one of the 153 passengers and crew were killed.
