'Disintegrated' Air Algerie plane found with no survivors; 'black box' recovered

(CBS/USA TODAY) - Investigators are working trying to figure out what caused an Air Algerie passenger plane to crash. 

The USA Today is now reporting there were no survivors, but the plane's black box has been found. 116 people were on board the flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers. Contact was lost with the plane just 50 minutes after takeoff. This was around the same time the plane sent a message asking to change its route because of bad weather. 

Wreckage from the Algerian airliner was found in Mali, in West Africa. The passengers and crew, we're told, were from 10 different countries. France has sent troops to secure the crash site.
