The recovery of bodies following the December crash of an AirAsia jetliner has been slow.

There were 162 people on board and only 59 bodies have been recovered so far.

Six bodies were plucked from the waters of the Java Sea today.

Rescuers are still struggling to lift the fuselage and what appears to be the plane's cockpit from the seabed at a depth of 100 feet.
