Brazil: More debris from crashed jet found
FERNANDO DE NORONHA, Brazil (AP) – FERNANDO DE NORONHA, Brazil (AP) - A Brazilian air force spokesman says more debris from the crashed Air France jet has been spotted.
The new debris includes what appears to be a seven-meter (23-foot) long chunk of the plane. But Col. Jorge Amaral says there were no obvious markings that would identify the jet.
Amaral says no bodies were seen in the latest wreckage spotted about 90 kilometers (55 miles) south of where the main debris field lies.
Also spotted were about 10 other metal objects and an oil slick stretching about 20 kilometers in the area.
The main debris field lies about 400 miles (640 kilometers) northeast of the Fernando de Noronha islands off Brazil's northern coast.
