    Since the search operation is continuously hindered by bad climate conditions and rough seas, only eight bodies have been located so far and brought to the shore.

    The head of Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency, Rear Marshal Henry Bambang Soelistyo said, “bad weather was a worry, with forecasts of rain, strong winds and high waves up to four metres till Sunday.”
