Material from Flight 7 turned over to Japan

The Soviet Union turned over to Japan crates of debris and victims' personal effects Monday recovered from the wreckage of the South Korean airliner shot down over the Sea of Japan.

But the Soviets said they found no remains of the 269 people aboard the jet and the material turned over did not include the downed plane's flight recorder, US and Japanese officials said. The Japanese patrol ship Tsugaru, stripped of its guns at Soviet request, retrieved the material in a rendezvous at the fishing port of Nevelsk, on Soviet-held Sakhalin Island. The recovered ''documents'' referred to earlier by the Soviets were a reference to Korean-language newspapers and magazines, a Japanese spokesman said.
