Ethiopia Asks France to Analyze Doomed 737's Black Boxes

(Bloomberg) -- Ethiopian authorities have requested assistance from France’s aviation accident investigation agency to analyze the black boxes from Sunday’s fatal crash, the agency known as BEA tweeted.

FAA acting administrator Daniel Elwell said earlier in the day that France was expected to take the black boxes. Germany declined a request from Ethiopia to review them, saying it doesn’t have the needed technical capabilities.
