Indonesian divers have recovered seven more bodies from December’s AirAsia crash, including one from the jet’s cockpit, bringing the total number of victims retrieved to 100.

The Airbus A320-200 crashed in to the Java Sea on December 28 while flying from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore. All 162 people on board were killed.

Divers on Friday retrieved four bodies, including one from the cockpit, according to Henry Bambang Soelistyo, chief of Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency. He said the body was believed to be either the pilot or co-pilot.

Soelistyo told MetroTV that three more bodies were recovered today, bringing to 100 the number of victims retrieved.

Some of the bodies were found off Sulawesi island, about 620 miles east of the crash site.
