The Indonesian navy says, that at least 40 bodies have been recovered from the sea in the search for missing AirAsia Flight QZ8501.

The bodies were spotted along with debris floating in the Java Sea off the Indonesian part of Borneo, in one of the search zones for the plane.

One official said the debris was 95 percent likely to be from the missing aircraft.

The search operation is now in its third day, with the area widened to cover 13 zones over land and sea.

The Airbus A320-200, carrying 162 people from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore, disappeared on Sunday.
