The number of bodies recovered in the aftermath of Sunday's crash of Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 in waters off Borneo rose to nine on Thursday, with one of them being identified as an Indonesian woman who was among the 162 people on board the plane.

"The body number B001 has been identified as Hayati Lutfiah Hamid," Budiono, chief of the disaster victim identification unit at East Java Police Headquarters, told a press conference.

He said her body was identified based on fingerprints, an identification card found on her body and her belongings, including a necklace with her initials and bracelet recognized by her family.
