Addis Ababa - The black box recovered from the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed on Sunday is the cockpit voice recorder, Ethiopian state TV said on Monday.
Investigators at the crash site recovered the recorder, TV said.
The passenger jet bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after take-off, killing all 157 people on board and raising questions about the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, a new model that also crashed in Indonesia in October.
The victims came from 33 nations and included 22 United Nations' staff.
The discovery of the black box, reported by Ethiopian state TV, may shed light on the cause.
