Cuban authorities said Saturday they had recovered the flight recorder from the Boeing 737 that crashed shortly after takeoff from the island’s capital Havana on Friday before. The crash killed 110 of the 113 people aboard, including nine crewmembers.

The Boeing 737-200 had been en route from Havana to the city of Holguín in eastern Cuba. It crashed shortly after takeoff.

The country’s president, Miguel Diaz-Canel personally supervised rescue efforts at the scene of the crash. He also ordered the creation of a commission to investigate the incident.

“The facts are being investigated and all the information will be given,” he told Cuban reporters on Saturday.
