(Newser) – Underwater robots have located the bodies of some of those who died in the Air France flight 447 crash two years ago, France’s Ecology Minister revealed on the radio today. “We have bodies… there are bodies that are still in the parts that have been found,” the minister said, according to CNN. Yesterday investigators said they’d found bits of debris, but now “it seems that we have discovered the wreckage site,” said another minister. The AP reports that the plane’s engines and part of its cabin have been found along with the bodies.
