Body found off Comoros not from plane crash

A Comoran official says a body has been found in the Indian Ocean but it is not related to the Yemenia Airways plane crash that killed 152 people last week. A search and rescue official says a body was found Sunday off the island of Anjouan. But Ali Abou Abasse told The Associated Press if the body was from the plane crash currents would have carried it to a different location.

A Yemeni official had suggested the body might be from the plane.

A 12-year-old-girl was the sole survivor of the plane that crashed Tuesday into the Indian Ocean as it tried to land in the Comoros.

The French aviation agency BEA said the signal beacons from the plane's two black boxes have been heard by a submarine. Yemeni divers are now searching for the flight data and cockpit recorders.
