Wreckage found on ocean floor may solve Airbus crash mystery

Wreckage from a Paris-bound Airbus that crashed after setting off from Rio de Janeiro, including bodies still strapped into seats, has been found by robot submarines 22 months after the aircraft crashed into the Atlantic. The discovery has revived hopes that the mystery surrounding the crash of the A330-203 in June 2009, with the loss of 228 lives, will eventually be solved.
