  1. Divers Retrieve AirAsia Black Box

    They braved strong currents and poor visibility to reclaim what may hold the key to understanding why flight 8501 crashed two weeks ago, claiming 162 lives.

Both will be sent to Jakarta for data analysis, and will hopefully yield answers. Meanwhile, the search continues for the rest of the plane and its passengers.
