Tears as Lion Air relatives visit crash site
Hundreds of relatives of victims have prayed and thrown flowers into the Java Sea where a Lion Air jet plunged into the water more than a week ago, killing all 189 people on board.
Two Indonesian navy vessels took the relatives to the crash location where a massive search effort is still under way. Many wept when they saw search personnel working.
One, named Santun, said visiting the location helped him grieve. He said: "Up until now I believed that my daughter would be found safely but if God decided differently and my daughter is found dead or not even found then as a father I would sincerely accept it."
Earlier this week, investigators said the 'black box' data recorder from the crashed Lion Air jet shows its airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights.
