A search team has recovered the second flight data recorder from the EgyptAir plane that crashed last month in the Mediterranean, Egyptian investigators said Friday.

The recorder, which gathers information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane, was "retrieved in several pieces", investigators said in a statement, a day after the aircraft's cockpit voice recorder was recovered.
