Indonesian rescuers climb Salak Mount to find the crash site of Russian-made plane Sukhoi Superjet 100, in Cipelang, Bogor, Indonesia, 10 May 2012. Rescuers on 10 May found bodies near the wreckage of a Russian passenger plane that crashed into an Indonesian mountain with 47 people on board. ‘Rescue workers have reached the crash site and found the wreckage and bodies of victims,’ said Gagah Prakoso, a spokesman for the National Search and Rescue Agency. Air Vice Marshal Daryatmo, the national search-and-rescue chief, said the bodies would be airlifted on Friday because the terrain made it difficult to transport them by land. The Sukhoi Superjet-100 appeared to have crashed into Mount Salak at a high speed from 6,000 feet (1,800 metres) and disintegrated, Prakoso said.
