Chile air crash: First bodies recovered from Pacific

At least three bodies and aircraft debris have been found in the Pacific Ocean after a Chilean air force plane crashed with 21 people aboard.

Fishermen and rescuers searching the waters around the remote Juan Fernandez islands found the bodies of at least two women and one man, officials said.

The plane, which was carrying TV presenter Felipe Camiroaga, was lost when trying to land in poor weather.
