This photo provided Friday July 25, 2014 by the French army shows soldiers at the site of the plane crash in Mali. French soldiers secured a black box from the Air Algerie wreckage site in a desolate region of restive northern Mali on Friday, the French president said. Terrorism hasn't been ruled out as a cause, although officials say the most likely reason for the catastrophe that killed all onboard is bad weather. At least 116 people were killed in Thursday's disaster, nearly half of whom were French. (AP Photo/ECPAD)BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — The U.N. peacekeeping mission in Mali said Saturday that its experts found the second black box of the Air Algerie plane that fell from the sky and disintegrated in remote northern Mali, killing all 118 people onboard.
