Jakarta, Indonesia:

Indonesian rescuers said on Sunday they discovered a signal from a Boeing passenger plane that crashed into the Java Sea shortly after take-off with 62 people on board.

A military ship “found the signal from (Sriwijaya Air) SJ182” and divers had recovered parts of the aircraft from about 23 meters below the surface of the water, said the Ministry of Transport in a statement citing the Indonesian military chief Hadi Tjahjanto.

The ministry did not state whether the signal was detected by the black box of the crashed plane.
