Divers in Indonesia have found six more bodies of passengers of the ill-fated Air Asia flight QZ 8501.

The corpses were found near the fuselage of the crashed plane bringing the number of recovered bodies to 59.

The search for the bodies had been hampered by bad weather and officials expect to find more corpses inside the fuselage, which is the main body of the plane.

Divers recovered the plane’s black box on January 12 while the fuselage was located by a Singaporean Navy vessel on Wednesday, January 14.

The ill-fated flight, which was carrying 162 passengers, disappeared from radar on December 28 shortly after take-off from Surabaya, Indonesia on its way to Singapore.
