ABUJA, Nigeria - Investigators found one of two black boxes from a Nigerian airliner that smashed into the ground just after takeoff, killing 96 people in the third mass-casualty jet crash to hit this West African nation in less than a year, officials said Monday.

The Boeing 737, owned by the private Nigerian airline, Aviation Development Co., was carrying 100 passengers and five crew when it went down just moments after taking off from Nigeria's capital on Sunday. Releasing the flight manifest, the airline said 96 people died and nine were hospitalized in Abuja.

There was no word on what caused the fiery crash, but the plane reportedly crashed in stormy weather.
How sad.
