BANGKOK, May 12 (Itar-Tass) — Helicopters in Indonesia with the help of nets are lifting from the crash site the bodies of victims of the Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 airliner disaster that occurred on May 9. This is the latest information published by the local media on Saturday.
Russian blogger Sergei Dolya who took part in the demonstration tour of the Russian plane and is following the progress of the search operation in Jakarta, reported that “four containers with the remains of the crash victims’ bodies have already been delivered today.” “They are immediately taken to a military hospital for identification,” Dolya writes in his Twitter blog.
