RIO DE JANEIRO, June 27 (UPI) -- It is unlikely more bodies will be found from the crash of Air France Flight 447, so further searching has been called off, Brazilian officials said.
The country's military announced late Friday it had suspended searches in the Atlantic Ocean where wreckage of Flight 447 was recovered last week, CNN reported.
Military investigators say they have recovered 51 of the doomed flight's 228 passengers and more than 600 parts and components of the Airbus A330-200. CNN reported the bodies were given to Brazilian authorities to be identified, while debris from the airplane has been handed over to French aviation officials.
The U.S. broadcaster quoted Brazilian military officials as saying ships will stay in the area in a bid to discover the aircraft's missing flight data recorders.
