Debris of crashed Air France 447 found in Atlantic

Parts of the wrecked Air France (AF) flight 447 was found over the Atlantic Ocean, said French investigators on Sunday.
The cause of the plane crash remains unknown. Sunday's mission is the fourth attempt to locate the black boxes that will give clue as to the cause of the accident, said the BBC.
The agency located the wrecked jet without giving much detail.
The Airbus plane that disappeared on the radar on 1 June 2009 was carrying 228 passengers and took off from Rio de Janeiro on 31 May at 22:00 GMT bound to Paris.
The last radio contact of AF 447 was on 1 June at 1:33 GMT.
It was reported that there was heavy storm during the flight. Most of the bodies were not found.
A report by the CNN said that message coming from the jet minutes before the belly crash mentioned problems measuring air speed but investigators said that that in itself was not sufficient to cause the crash.
The airline company was charged by a French judge for manslaughter over the disaster.
The search operation was jointly financed by Air France and Airbus that includes diving down to 4,000 meters (13,120 feet) using robots to visualize the ocean bed between Brazil and West Africa.
