A Pakistan International Airlines spokesman said on Thursday (May 28) that search teams had recovered the cockpit voice recorder from the fated jet which crashed last week, killing 97 people.

The Airbus A320 came down in a crowded residential district of Karachi.

Only two people survived.

The flight data recorder had previously been found.

Pakistani officials and Airbus investigators are collecting evidence at the site as they try to determine the cause of the country's worst airline disaster in years.

Under international aviation rules, French investigators from the French air safety investigation authority for civil aviation - have joined the probe as the jet was designed in France.

The BEA said in a statement the two recorders would be examined at its laboratory just outside Paris.

Extrajudicial killings in PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan not acceptable: Activist at UNHRC

National Equality Party JKGBL, Chairman Sajjad Raja while speaking at UNHRC's 44th session on July 09 said that the extrajudicial killings taking place in Pakistan occupied so called 'Azad' Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are not acceptable. He said, "The citizens of Azad Kashmir stand before you today, seeking intervention on the repression and extra judicial killings of our people - 'AZAD' means 'free', but this is a false label that has been attached to our people to hide the truth in a disgusting way. In fact, any dissent towards Pakistan is mercilessly crushed through lent officers, army atrocities and the ISI. Today even the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir is agitating against the Pakistani bullying for forcing constitutional changes through the 14th amendment in Act 74 down our throats in the name of Islam and brotherhood."

These aircraft look as if they are flying very near the moon and sun. The mind-boggling photographs are a clever perspective trick captured by amateur astronomer & photographer Sebastien Lebrigand, who lives outside Paris. The 45-year-old electrician's backyard position 30kms from Charles de Gaulle Airport allows him to patiently wait for aircraft perfectly line up with the moon & sun. He uses a telescope with his camera to be able to shoot amazing close-ups. A special filter allows him to capture the sun without damaging his eyesight.
