Bodies And Debris Found In Search For AirAsia Plane
Wreckage has been found in Indonesian waters believed to be connected to the AirAsia flight that disappeared with 162 people aboard.
“AirAsia Indonesia regrets to inform that The National Search and Rescue Agency Republic of Indonesia (BASARNAS) today confirmed that the debris found earlier today is indeed from QZ8501, the flight that had lost contact with air traffic control on the morning of 28th December 2014,” the airline said in a statement.
Indonesian officials have downgraded the number of bodies they say have been retrieved, from six to three. Bambang Soelistyo, the head of Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency, said retrieval efforts were slowed by weather conditions and will continue through the night and into Wednesday.[su_csky_ad]
