CAIRO, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Egypt has found and obtained both black boxes from a Russian passenger plane that crashed in the country's Sinai peninsula on Saturday, the civil aviation minister told a news conference.

There are normally two black boxes on an aircraft, one for cockpit voice recordings and one for flight data. Egyptian authorities had earlier said they only found one. (Writing by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Alison Williams)
