BEIRUT - Search crews have found parts of the Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed into the Mediterranean last month and efforts are under way to retrieve them,  Lebanon's army said Saturday.

The Boeing 737 crashed January 25 minutes after takeoff from Beirut in a fierce thunderstorm. All 90 people on board died.

An army statement said crews located parts of the wreckage Saturday and teams were photographing them before retrieval. The army did not say if the wreckage included the fuselage.

Transport Minister Ghazi Aridi told reporters part of the wreckage was found 150 feet (45 meters) deep off the coastal village of Naameh just south of Beirut airport.

Fifteen bodies have been recovered from the sea since the crash. The plane's black box has not been found.
