Some media do say that the CVR also has been found. The source mentioned below, states that PIA said that both devices have been found. Who is correct, PIA or DEA?

Latest news is they found the housing, but not the data module of it. Would explain some of the contradicting information.

Okay, thanks for clarification! Any idea on why the housing and the data module would be separated? It would be by the huge impact I presume?

CVR has been found by AAIB team of Pakistan. BEA has received a request from Pakistan to handle FDR & CVR repair and data download operations at a later date (in France). (Communication done after mutual concurrence)

F-WTTO, A330-800, has again left TLS this evening, heading for KHI .
They will pick up the BEA insectors and fly them back with the black boxes.
Crew not allowed to leave the aircraft in KHI so it should be a short turnaround before flying back normally to LFPB this time. They should arrive 01JUN in the late afternoon I guess.
