2:01 am
ship not the aircraft. officials have been scouring the java sea to look for wreckage and more bodies. three bodies have been found today. the crucial piece of evidence is the black boxes, but no pings have been reported. searchers have found several objects that they believed to be connected to the fuselage, but the discovery of one of them shows how arduous this process is. let's turn to cnn's anna coren in surabaya. anna what's the latest? >> reporter: john as you say, another three bodies located late this afternoon and that takes the number that have been retrieved to 37. a total of 13 have been identified. we are talking about 162 passengers and crew who were on board airasia flight 8501 that left here surabaya on the 28th of december in the early
2:02 am
morning. lost contact with the control tower 42 minutes later. it is believed it hit bad weather and crashed into the java sea. we don't know the cause of the crash, obviously we are waiting to find the black boxes that have the vital information. as you say, there have been in pings or signals detected from the flight recorders. so the search continues. in the meantime the families they are desperately waiting for news. obviously those three other bodies found this afternoon, two males and one female they are taken to the recovery center and flown here to surabaya where they are then identified. that's the difficult task. speaking to the officials running that. they say they are racing against the clock because the bodies are decomposing in the warm tropical waters of the java sea. the longer they are there, the more they will deteriorate.
2:03 am
there will not be fingerprints to locate. they have to go to teeth and bone to make those identifications. that is a much longer process. officials here have offered to take the families to the search site. something they can then give flowers and say their prayers and perhaps ease their suffering and their pain. you know this as you say, john will be such a long and arduous process ahead. they have only found four items of the wreckage at the bottom of the java sea. weather is difficult. storms are constant. divers have a window of opportunity to get down there today, but visibility is impossible on the sea floor. this could take weeks, if not months, to trace the wreckage of the plane and find the bodies and track the black boxes.
2:04 am
>> anna coren, thank you so much. president obama needs to hit back harder against north korea. outgoing foreign relations committee member robert menendez says the hacking of sony pictures was tame of vandalism. >> when the president characterized the action of sony by north korea as an act of vandalism. vandalism is when you break a window. terrorism is when you destroy a building. north korea landed a virtual bomb on sony's parking lot and ultimately had real consequences to it as a company and individuals who work there. i think there has to be a real consequence to this otherwise you will see it happen again and again. >> on cnn's state of the union, menendez called for stronger measures like putting north korea on the list of terrorism.

2:06 am
behind this hack. cnn and others reported there are private security experts who believe it was an inside job and north korea did not coordinate the attack on sony. by the u.s. launching the sanctions, they believe they have strong evidence that north korea is behind this. for pyongyang to say a growing number of people internationally, don't believe the united states and the u.s. is sanctioning us to validate its shaky case, that is what pyongyang is using to say the u.s. is a bully. the terrorism murder trial of the accused boston marathon bombing dzhokhar tsarnaev is beginning this morning with jury selection. tsarnaev is charged with plotting the bombings with his late brother that killed three people and injured 260 others. bombing victim heather abbott
