Greece hunts for air crash clues

Both black boxes from the Cypriot airliner which crashed near Athens have been recovered as Greece investigates its worst air disaster. All 121 passengers and crew aboard Flight 522 died when it hit a hill after an apparent drop in cabin pressure knocked out both pilots. Tests on the bodies appear to confirm that most of the victims froze to death before the actual crash.
