Topic: Divers search for bodies in fuselage of crashed AirAsia jet


By Vorasit Satienlerk and Djohan Widjaja PANGKALAN BUN, Indonesia (Reuters) - Indonesian navy divers searched for bodies on Thursday in the fuselage of an AirAsia airliner that crashed into the sea more than two weeks ago, killing all 162 people on board. A military vessel found the fuselage on Wednesday, about 3 km (2 miles) from where the tail of the aircraft was hauled up from the bottom of the Java Sea last weekend. Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 lost contact with air traffic control in bad weather on Dec. 28, less than halfway into a two-hour flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore. The cause of AirAsia's first fatal crash is not yet known, but seasonal storms are believed to have been a factor.
