Australian investigators have arrived in Fiji to begin a probe into the cause of a plane crash on the Pacific island nation which killed 17 people.
Officials were also making preparations on Sunday for removing the bodies from the crash site.
Police say the Air Fiji plane went down in rugged jungle-covered country near Nasevou village in the heart of Fiji's main island of Viti Levu, shortly after dawn on Saturday.
Some say the accident is the worst in Fiji's aviation records.
The plane crashed about 15 minutes after taking off from Nausori Airport for Fiji's main tourist arrival-and-departure point, Nadi International Airport.
A helicopter reached the crash site 42 miles (70 kilometers) northwest of the
capital Suva on Saturday, and reported scattered wreckage - but no sign of life.
Witnesses on local radio described seeing the plane flying low.
One man said he heard a boom "like a cannonball" and saw the aircraft's "wings and tail falling."
The crash site is about six hours' walk from the nearest village, with few roads and no telephone links.
Police operations director Jahir Khan said police would try to remove the bodies on Sunday.
Local rescue workers combing the site on Sunday said attempts thus far to recover the bodies had been hampered by a lack of equipment.
"There are some still in the wreck, still stuck in the wreck and we need cutters and some modern equipment to get them out. We need to try and clear the bodies from the wreck. All is just limbs and intestines, you can't describe it. It's horrible."

Five of the 15 passengers killed were Australians.
Of the others, one was Japanese, one Chinese, one was from New Zealand and nine were Fijians.
Officials said the names of some of the dead would not be released until relatives had been notified.
