RECIFE, Brazil (AP) - A Brazilian military official says searchers found two male bodies in the Atlantic Ocean near the area where an Air France jet is believed to have crashed.
Air force spokesman Col. Jorge Amaral says the bodies were
recovered Saturday morning.
They were picked up roughly 400 miles (640 kilometers) northeast of the Fernando de Noronha islands off Brazil's northern coast.
Amaral says a suitcase also was found containing a plane ticket for the flight.
Flight 447 disappeared Sunday with 228 people on board. Officials say there were no survivors.
