AirAsia officials say four more bodies were recovered from the Java Sea on Sunday as Indonesian teams continued searching for the wreckage of a passenger jet that disappeared one week ago. Bad weather is hampering efforts to locate most of the 162 people believed to have been killed aboard the flight.

Ron Corben reports:

“The search for bodies and debris from the aircraft moved into a new phase Sunday with deployment of locators to pinpoint signals from the jet's vital black box data recorders. Indonesian TV Sunday continued almost blanket (constant) coverage of the tragedy, pointing to the difficult tasks of recovering bodies and transporting them to Surabaya to be formally identified. On Sunday up to 90 divers from Russia and Indonesia had hoped to dive to locate the flight data recorders. But sea conditions continued to frustrate their efforts.

Nine of the 34 bodies found have been identified. There's still no official cause for the plane crash that was en route from Indonesia to Singapore during a storm.

Suspected Boko Haram militants have seized a military base in the northeast Nigeria town of Baga. Local residents said the armed Islamist group overwhelmed troops after an hours-long battle at the facility near Lake Chad.

Israel is weighing more steps to punish the Palestinians for their efforts to join the International Criminal Court, even as it froze 125 million dollars in tax revenues it collects for them. The Palestinians rely on the monthly tax revenue transfer to run their government and pay the salaries of civil servants. The Palestinian bid to join the Hague-based court could lead to war crime charges against the Jewish state, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Sunday that his country would not allow its military to be prosecuted.

Islamic State released a new propaganda video, this one showing a British hostage depicting life as normal in the militant-controlled Iraqi city of Mosul. In an eight-minute video posted on jihadi websites, the hostage, photojournalist John Cantlie, claims "life in Mosul is business as usual." He said residents in Iraq's second biggest city, taken over by Islamic State insurgents last June, are not "living in fear." During the documentary-style video, Cantlie visits a market, a hospital and a police station. Britain says

Pakistan says its airstrikes have killed 31 militants and a suspected U.S. drone strike another seven insurgents in the tribal regions along the Afghan border. Islamabad says its air force destroyed four terrorist hideouts and a suicide bomber training center in the Tirrah Valley of the Khyber tribal district.

Thousands of police officers and mourners from around the United States gathered Sunday in New York City to honor Wenjian Liu, a policeman shot to death last month in a targeted attack. The city's mayor Bill de Blasio and family members eulogized the officer, who was slain alongside his partner as they sat in their patrol car late last month. Twenty-eight-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley killed Liu and Officer Rafael Ramos, before shooting himself in a nearby subway station.

Jury selection for the trial of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev have set to begin Monday. Tsarnaev is facing 30 charges, including conspiracy and use of a weapon of mass destruction, in the killing of three people and injuring more than 260 with two homemade bombs at the race's crowded finish line on April 15th, 2013. Tsarnaev is 21-years-old. He faces the death penalty if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty.
