 JAKARTA - Another four bodies were found on Wednesday by teams searching for AirAsia flight QZ8501, including one that was dressed in an air stewardess uniform.

The bodies - one woman and three men - were found as recovery teams struggled with bad weather. 

This brings the total number of bodies recovered so far to seven - three women and four men.

Stormy weather forced Indonesian rescuers to suspend their search on Wednesday morning for the bodies of those on the AirAsia jet, which plunged into the water at the weekend carrying 162 people.

The plane crashed into the Java Sea south-west of the island of Borneo, with debris including an exit door and a blue suitcase so far retrieved from the area.
