Nine more bodies of victims from the Yemenia Airbus crash near the Comoros islands in the Indian Ocean were found on a remote Tanzanian island on Thursday, according to officials.

AFP - Nine more bodies thought to be from the Yemenia Airbus that crashed off the Comoros archipelago in the Indian Ocean have washed up on a remote Tanzanian island, an official said Thursday.
  
"Nine more bodies were found between yesterday and today," district commissioner of Mafia island Manzie Mangonchie said, adding that he expected the strong ocean currents to bring in several more in the coming days.
  
Thirteen bodies thought to be from the airliner, which plunged into the Indian Ocean last week with 153 people on board, had already been found on the Tanzanian island.
  
The bodies are being transferred from Mafia to hospitals in the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam.
  
Fisherman in the Comoros have also reported finding human remains believed to be from passengers on the doomed flight in the north of the archipelago's main island of Grande Comore.
