HAVANA (Reuters) - The commission investigating the May plane crash in Cuba that killed 112 people said on Tuesday that any report on possible causes of the accident were "premature," Cuban state-run television reported.

Mexican plane-leasing company Damojh said on Monday that black boxes retrieved from the wreckage of the plane it had leased to Cuba's national airline, Cubana, showed that a steep take-off due to human error by its Mexican crew was to blame.

But a presenter on Cuba's state midday news broadcast read a statement on Tuesday by the commission investigating the crash that said it was "continuing its work."

"Once it has concluded its analysis of the evidence, it will inform on the results," the statement read.
