This is good news for the families of the 228 victims, because it opens the door to continue recovering bodies after the two promoted earlier this month and those found at sea in the days following the accident. French judicial authorities had indicated they would only going up bodies in the case of examinations conducted at two rescued make identification possible.

But tests have shown that identification is possible, although so far not been carried out to compare the DNA recovered from the bodies to the relatives of the victims. However, police sources said they did not systematically recover all the bodies, if not only those whose status is acceptable and not degrading.

In that sense, spoke last 10 days the trial judges of the case in a letter to the families of the victims, which stated that "not too badly damaged bodies mount up" to "preserve the dignity and respect for the unfortunate victims and those who weep.
