Four bodies are still to be recovered following an air crash in Indonesia's West Papua province on Saturday which claimed 25 lives.

The domestic service, carrying 19 passengers and six crew, had crashed in poor weather into the sea just short of the runway at Kaimana in West Papua.

Search and rescue officials say the black box on the Chinese built aircraft has been located.
