CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt has found and obtained both black boxes from a Russian passenger plane that crashed in the country’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday, the civil aviation minister told a news conference.

There are normally two black boxes on an aircraft, one for cockpit voice recordings and one for flight data. Egyptian authorities had earlier said they only found one.
