The latest on the crashed Indonesian Lion Air plane.
 
Search teams have discovered a black box, the landing gear, and more wreckages of the plane.
 
Indonesian Transport Ministry confirmed on Thursday that the black box has been found.
 
But it was still uncertain whether the recovered black box was the flight data recorder or the cockpit voice recorder.
 
A landing gear, and other larger parts of the crashed aircraft, including some parts of the fuselage, were also found.
 
Efforts were underway to search for the other black box, but the mission was hampered by strong underwater current.
 
Some 50 divers were involved in the search mission on the sea floor, about 500 meters northwest of the location where the pilot of the JT 610 flight last communicated with the air traffic control.
 
The Boeing 737 Max 8 jet en route to the city of Pangkal Pinang crashed shortly after taking off from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta international airport on Monday morning.
 
It is believed that all 189 people onboard the plane have been killed.
