black box which has been retrieved and what sort of information does it hold. well that depends very much on which black box they actually found because initially they thought they found the flight data recorder that would record technical information from the flight from all of the instruments from the engines information like pressure vertical acceleration speed direction altitude these kinds of things but also what they're not but then at the press conference they said they're not one hundred percent sure yet if that was actually the device that they found because possibly they found the cockpit voice recorder that would record audio from the cockpit that would be conversations between the pilot and the copilot for example or with any other member of the crew possibly but also warning signals that. any instruments in the cockpit for example that would help

investigators piece together what happened in the final moments of that flight so we don't we're not sure yet which one of those recorders they found but either way it will hold vital information for the investigators when they try to figure out what caused this accident feel so it's so it just looks like we are getting closer to finding out. yes definitely but also the investigators said that it's going to take a while it's going to take a few weeks to download the data from that device that they found today and of course they're still looking for that second black box and then they might release a preliminary report in a month from now but a final analysis will not be released until. a few months later maybe six months even and they'll not want to jump to conclusions as to what caused this

crash because that will that will have far reaching consequences bill it's taken several days to to find this device is not unusual have a particular set but. well they know pretty much exactly where that plane went down and where they lost contact it's only a few kilometers off the coast of java and also the sea isn't very deep there it's thirty to thirty five meters but apparently what's been difficult is the current that seems to be very strong also the sea floor seems to be very muddy and also apparently there are energy pipelines down there so those are all things that have made it difficult for the teams to find pieces of that plane but these flight recorders obviously they found it because they emit signals that help the divers locate them and of course the divers that went down they had equipment that helped them receive those signals and that's how they circled in on the flight recorder
4:07 pm
but we heard in the report even once they had located it it wasn't easy to retrieve because they had to take it out of the mud and from under the debris so now they're looking for that second flight recorder and they're hoping going to find it along with the fuselage of the plane will. pass in hot thank you. to india and country rocked me to movement on twitter over recent weeks women mainly in the countries english language media have alleged sexual harassment influential editors and reporters but what does the me to movement mean for field reports is far from the country's megacities either your family cars been to the northern city of less than two hundred fifty kilometers from delhi. but an assignment on the television news channel. she's one of the few female t.v. in the conflict of one point five million people. after graduating with
