China plane crash flight recorder found

The flight recorder from a plane that crashed in northwest China has been found, the state news agency Xinhua has said.

At least 42 people died after the passenger plane crash-landed in the northern province of Heilongjiang.

Survivors have said they felt a series of heavy jolts before the plane hit the ground and it caught fire after crashing.
