Brazilian TAM airlines said Sunday it is to build a memorial at the company's cargo service building, nearly three weeks after an Airbus A320 belonging to the airline crashed into the site causing 199 deaths and heavy damage.

The building, which was the headquarters of the TAM airlines cargo service, was demolished Sunday afternoon with 75 kg of dynamite. A special company employed by TAM is to begin a search among the debris for remains and victims' mementos.

Brazil's state news agency Radiobras quoted Sao Paulo State police as saying that a total of 151 victims have been identified.

The July 17 crash was the deadliest in Brazil's aviation history, when the TAM plane crashed into a fuel station and exploded shortly after landing at Sao Paulo's Congonhas airport, killing 199. Twelve of the victims were people who happened to be on the ground and were caught in the path of the ill-fated aircraft.
