INONESIA
Black Box of New Year plane crash found
After 8 months, hopes are raised that the cause of the accident which killed 102 people will be revealed. Jakarta spent over 3 million dollars on the rescue operation. The black box will now be studied by Washington.

Jakarta (AsiaNews) – Light may finally shed on the cause of the New Year air crash in Indonesia of the Adam Air  Boeing 737, after its black box was found; the airplane disappeared during its flight from Java to Sulawesi on January 1st.  On board there were 102 people, whose bodies have never been found.

 

After 8 months yesterday’s discovery of airplane equipment may finally resolve the case.  On August 27 an underwater robot scoured the seabed around Majene (Sulawesi Island), singling out a part of the black box containing recordings of the flight, while yesterday the piece containing the pilot’s final communication was also discovered.

 

The recovery efforts which cost Jakarta 3 million dollars were carried out by Phoenix International, from the US National Transportation Safety Board, and an Indonesian commission.  Jusman Syafii Djamal, Indonesian Minister of Transportation said both tapes will be sent to Washington for analyses.  In the immediate aftermath hypothesis regarding the accident abounded: from a terrorist attack to a technical malfunction.  Just a few days after January 1st, a man identifying himself as an ex Adam Air employee, told Indonesian media months before many pilots had been fired because they refused to fly given the poor safety standards of the planes.

The children of Mosul and the future: the "five-star" refugee camp
by Bernardo CervelleraIn the garden of the parish of Mar Elia beside the tents there are containers that serve as classrooms for the children and as a library. Another serves as a room for sewing. A children's choir. Fr. Douglas: "Taking care of refugees does not just mean thinking about eating, drinking, medicines, injections, vaccinations ... The displaced persons need to do something and to cultivate hope."

Way of the Cross: the refugees from Mosul beyond the emergency
by Bernardo CervelleraThere are at least half a million people who have taken refuge in Kurdistan to flee from ISIS. In the Shlama Mall at Erbil: 350 people living in the skeleton of a building under construction, with draped sheets and blankets serving as walls. The ordination of a young man, also a refugee, shows that with the flight, there is something that has not been destroyed: the faith, the traditions, the priesthood.

As 'Adopt a Christian from Mosul' continues, Mosul bishop notes that Jesus is born amid refugee containers
by Amel NonaPersecuted by the Islamic state, refugees have lost everything: belongings, home, jobs, school, and their future. Yet, their faith and mission remain strong. For them, almost 900,000 euros have been raised and sent. Pope Francis sends a message of closeness. The campaign continues according to the Patriarch of Baghdad's proposal of fasting and moderation at Christmas and New Year, with the money saved offered to the Christians of Mosul.
