The Brazilian and French search teams managed to retrieve 41 bodies on the Rio-Paris flight passengers’ list, according to AFP. The Air France aircraft crashed in the Atlantic ocean last Monday. The investigators will run the first tests on the Fernando de Noronha island.

The main analysis is conducted by the Recife legal doctors, on the Brazilian Nord-East coast.

France asked for the permission to bring two tug boats in the Brazilian waters, as to bring 40 tones of the equipment necessary for the search.
