Data from the cockpit voice recorder of the Ethiopian jet that crashed last week has been successfully downloaded, France’s air accident investigation agency said on Saturday (local time).

The French agency said in a tweet it had not listened to the audio files and that the data had been transferred to Ethiopian investigators, reports Reuters.

It added that work on the flight data recorder would resume on Sunday.
