Indonesian officials say 122 people are now known to have been on board a military transport plane which crashed in a residential area of Medan.

No-one is believed to have survived after the Hercules C-130 plane hit two houses and a hotel before bursting into flames on Tuesday.

Attempts to remove bodies from the site have resumed after stopping overnight.

Many of those who died, including at least one child, are thought to have been relatives of servicemen and women.

The military has repeatedly revised the passenger list, a sign of how loosely the military keeps track of who gets on its planes, our correspondent adds.
