AirAsia QZ8501: Plane tail is lifted from the sea bed

The Indonesian navy has retrieved from the sea bed the tail of the AirAsia plane that crashed two weeks ago.

However divers are still searching for the plane's "black box" flight recorders, which officials believe have been separated from the tail section.

Flight QZ8501 disappeared from radar in bad weather on 28 December with 162 people on board. It was flying from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore.
