AirAsia fuselage

An attempt to raise the largest piece of fuselage of AirAsia Flight 8501 was aborted Saturday, but as the plane cleared the sea floor divers were able to retrieve four more bodies from the wreckage site. And on Sunday, another attempt to lift the submerged fuselage also failed when a wire rope snapped after the wreckage reached the surface of the water.

Officials are trying to float the 13-meter (43-foot) piece of wreckage to the surface and then hoist it onto a waiting ship.

But strong winds, high waves and heavy rain prevented the Indonesian Navy divers from having another go Sunday at raising the fuselage.
