PARIS - France has located the bodies of some passengers who perished when an Air France plane crashed off Brazil in 2009, and wreckage from the aircraft, the government said on Monday.

The bodies and wreckage would be brought to the surface in the next few weeks, it said.

Air France flight 447, an Airbus 330-203 plane, plunged into the ocean en route to Paris from Rio de Janeiro in June 2009, killing all 228 passengers and crew on board, after the flight hit stormy weather and vanished.

"Bodies were found. They will be recovered and identified," Environment Minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet told a news conference with the transport minister and members of the BEA air accident inquiry office.
