We support Saudi’s decision to use its capabilities for inflight refueling — James N. Mattis, United States Secretary of Defence
Jakarta: Indonesia called off the search for passengers of a Lion Air plane, almost two weeks after the jetliner plunged into the Java Sea killing 189 people on board. Some 196 bags containing body parts were recovered with 79 victims identified and handed over to families. “Since Friday noon until today we have not found any more victims and I declare the search operation is over,” Muhammad Syaugi, head of the search agency, said.
