The Press - - World -

Navy divers have lo­cated the cock­pit voice recorder of a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea in Oc­to­ber, In­done­sian of­fi­cials said, in a pos­si­ble boost to the ac­ci­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Rid­wan Dja­malud­din, a deputy mar­itime min­is­ter, said that re­mains of some of the 189 peo­ple who died in the crash were also dis­cov­ered. ‘‘We got con­fir­ma­tion this morn­ing from the Na­tional Trans­porta­tion Safety Com­mit­tee’s chair­man,’’ he said. A spokesman for In­done­sian navy said divers us­ing high-tech equip­ment found the voice recorder be­neath 8m of mud.
