    The full deciphering of the black box may take several days because it is badly damaged. The second in-flight recorder has not yet been found, Marseille Prosecutor General Brice Robin said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The first data from the in-flight recorders of the Germanwings passenger jet that crashed in the French Alps may be deciphered already later on Wednesday, Marseille Prosecutor General Brice Robin said.

    “The first data may become known already today,” Robin said.

    He said that the full deciphering of the black box may take several days because it is badly damaged. The second in-flight recorder has not yet been found, he added.

    The black box was recovered shortly after the Germanwings Airbus A320 plane en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf crashed with 150 people on board in southern France Tuesday morning. Most of the passengers were German, Spanish and Turkish nationals.

    French Foreign Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday that all possible causes in the crash of the passenger airplane were being reviewed, and that a terrorist act was not at the top of the list.

    Germanwings is a low-cost airline owned by German-based Lufthansa.
