The aide to France's top transport official, Jean-Louis Borloo,
says the "black boxes have not been detected." The aide spoke on
condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to be
publicly named. She says that French military ships searching in the area where the plane crashed have "heard sounds" but that those were not signals from the flight's voice or data recorders. Earlier today, French newspaper Le Monde reported that French ships had detected a "very weak signal" from the black boxes. The boxes are key to determining what happened to the Air France plane that plunged into the ocean May 31, killing all 228 aboard.
