BANGKOK, May 18 (Itar-Tass) — The evacuation of remains of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 crash victims has been suspended, head of the Indonesian National Transport Security Agency Madhya Daryatmo said on Friday.
“The evacuation is suspended, but it will resume if new remains are found,” he said. “On the tenth day of the search, we found no new remains on the crash scene, and the evacuation was suspended in the afternoon.”
Meanwhile, Russian and Indonesian experts are deciphering data from the SSJ100 speech recorder. The parametric data recorder of the SSJ100 has not been found so far.
