MANILA - Divers have recovered the body of the Philippines' interior minister from the wreckage of a light aircraft that crashed into the sea near the central island of Masbate three days ago, a senior official said on Tuesday.

The body of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo was pulled out from the six-seat Piper Seneca plane that had been carrying him, Transportation and Communication Secretary Mar Roxas told reporters.

The bodies of the two pilots, one of whom was a Nepalese flight student, were still being removed from the wreckage, Roxas said.

"Sad as it is, we are now in search and recovery and retrieval," Roxas said.
