PARIS (REUTERS) - The cockpit voice recorder from the Air Algerie flight that crashed last month in northern Mali, killing all 116 passengers and crew, is unintelligible, investigators said on Thursday.

The McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft, en route to Algiers, smashed into the ground on July 24 south of the Malian town of Gossi, near the border with Burkina Faso.

Experts in Paris have been examining the two "black boxes"retrieved from the wreckage of the plane.

The team has been unable to extract information from one, Remi Jouty, president of France's BEA air accident investigator, told a news conference.
