Jakarta. Naval warship KRI Parang has transported two body bags containing body parts suspected of Sriwijaya Air Flight 182 crash victims along with the Boeing 737-500's debris from the Thousand Islands, off the coast north of Jakarta to Tanjung Priok Port in Jakarta for identification on Sunday.
KRI Parang found four body parts, which will be sent over to the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) and the National Police's Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) team for cross-examinations with genetic samples from the victims' immediate family members.
The joint team of the Indonesian Navy, the National Police, and the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) has received eight bags related to the evacuation of Sriwijaya Air Flight 182. Five of the bags contained pieces of human bodies.
The team said it had detected a signal coming from the airplane's black boxes and would begin retrieving it on Monday.
