Body of one missing Tuninter passenger recovered in Italy.
The body of one of the three people still missing from the crash of a Tunisian passenger aircraft has been recovered by Italian authorities.
DNA tests will be carried out on the man's remains to establish his identity.
The Tuninter ATR-72 aircraft was flying from Bari, Italy to the Tunisian resort of Djerba on 6 August when both engines failed and the pilot was forced to ditch into the sea off Sicily. At least 13 of the 39 people on board were killed and three men were listed as missing.
Reports in Italy also said that one of the aircraft's two flight recorders had been recovered. The flight data and voice recorders sank to a depth of more than 1,400 metres following the crash.
