A search and rescue agency official says he’s not expecting any survivors from Lion Air flight JT610, which crashed into seas off Jakarta with 189 people aboard.

The operations director at the agency, Bambang Suryo Aji, says the search effort is focusing on finding bodies.

He said six body bags have been used so far for human remains recovered.

Aji said the location of the plane hull hasn’t been identified yet. Waters where it sank are up to 30 metres deep.

The search is currently planned to last seven days and could be extended.

The passenger plane had only been in service two months.
