The Indonesian transportation minister said on Tuesday that rescuers had not found the wreckage of an Indonesian jetliner that slammed into a mountain during stormy weather. Earlier aviation officials reported that 90 bodies were scattered at the crash site, and that a dozen people may have survived. "The search and rescue team is still looking for the location," Transport Minister Hatta Radjasa told El-Shinta radio, insisting that earlier reports were based on rumors from villagers that were passed on to local officials. "It has not yet been found." Other senior aviation officials also retreated from the reports of wreckage found.
