PARIS, June 15 (AFP) - Police with sniffer dogs carried out a new search for bodies on Tuesday among the debris of a roof section that collapsed at Charles de Gaulle airport last month, sources close to the investigation said on Tuesday.

After a four-hour search the specialists, who travelled to the airport north of Paris from southern France, uncovered nothing new, a source said.

According to another source, two people believed to have been in transit via the airport on the day of the accident are still unaccounted for. The two had been travelling from Indonesia, the source said.

Four people were killed and three hurt on May 23 when a section of roof collapsed in the airport's ultra-modern Terminal E, a 650-metre tubular building.

Experts are still trying to determine the cause of the deadly roof collapse, and the terminal remains closed to passengers.

Air France said on Tuesday that it was changing the times of some of its transatlantic flights, as a result of the incident.
