TANGERANG, Indonesia -- Indonesian investigators on Monday said they will release later this month initial findings of an ongoing investigation into the Lion Air plane crash that killed 189 people, as the airline denied that its pilots were inadequately trained.

The preliminary results will be issued on Nov. 28 or 29, Soerjanto Tjahjono, chief of the National Transportation Safety Committee, or KNKT, told local reporters. "We will publicize the findings on the internet."
