Indonesia announced Friday the end of victim identification work after the crash of a Lion Air plane that crashed in the Java Sea nearly four weeks ago with 189 people on board.
Authorities will issue a preliminary report Wednesday on the causes of the accident Boeing 737-Max 8, which entered service in August.
The flight to Pangkal Pinang plunged into the sea after taking off from Jakarta on October 29th.
Since then, investigators have been performing DNA tests on recovered human remains. Relief supplies filled about 200 body bags and Friday, 125 people were identified, said Arthur Tampi, the head of the National Police Medical Center.
"We have identified 89 men and 36 women, including two foreigners, an Italian and an Indian," he said.
All remains have been tested, the identification work was stopped, he explained.
The low-cost Indonesian company has decided to pay $ 100,000 in compensation to the families of each of the victims.
One of the black boxes, the one that collects the flight data, has been found but the divers are always looking for the one that records the sounds in the cockpit.
For now, investigators have mentioned a problem with a Boeing 737 Max speed sensor and Angle of Attack sensor (AOA), one of the most advanced airliners in the world.
