Air Niugini repatriates body to Indonesia

Papua New Guinea's national carrier is repatriating the body of an Indonesian man who died when one of its airplanes crash landed in Micronesia.

Air Niugini said that on Sunday, it flew the body of Eko Cahyanto Singgih from Chuuk state in Micronesia where PX73 crashed into the sea just short of the runway eleven days ago.

Divers found the man's body in the lagoon several days later.

Before his body was flown to PNG, Federated State of Micronesia government officials attended a dawn farewell ceremony.

From Port Moresby, the man's body is to be flown to his family's village in Java, via Singapore.

The incident is being investigated by aviation and accident officials from PNG and the US.
