MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to French parliamentarian Christophe Castaner, cited by the France Info radio station, one of the plane's flight recorders has been found.

"One of the black boxes from the plane has been found," French parliamentarian Christophe Castaner, who is currently near the crash site said, as quoted by the France Info radio station.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed that one of the black boxes had been found adding that it would be "immediately examined" by investigators.

German airline Lufthansa said that the air crash was an accident and any other theory of the tragedy's reason was "speculation", Heike Birlenbach, Vice President Sales and Services Europe, said during a press conference at a Barcelona airport.

Castaner said via Twitter that the airplane was totally destroyed and nothing but debris and bodies were at the Airbus A320 crash site.

Germany's ambassador to France and French Interior Minister Cazeneuve were on the crash site as well, he added.

David Galtier, the head of gendarmerie of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, said that there are no signs of survivors in the plane crash as quoted by Haute-Provence Info media outlet.
