SEOUL, South Korea — A woman suspected in the crash of a Korean Air jetliner remained silent today when questioned by South Korean and Japanese officials after a suicide attempt.
The woman regained consciousness early today at a Bahrain military hospital, where she was taken after she tried to kill herself Tuesday, but she "closed her eyes" after the bedside questioning, Japanese Charge d'Affaires Takao Natsumi told reporters in Manama, Bahrain.
South Korea is seeking permission from Bahrain for a special investigative team to interrogate the woman, who disembarked from the ill-fated KAL jet with a man on its last stop before the plane crashed along the Thai-Burmese border Sunday with 115 people aboard.
Wreckage Not Found
A KAL spokesman said a joint search with Burmese authorities in a jungle near the Thai-Burmese border has not located the wreckage of the Boeing 707.
