Myanmar’s military finds plane wreckage, bodies

Myanmar’s military said today it has found the wreckage of a plane in the Andaman Sea that went missing with around 120 people on board. Several bodies have also been recovered.

The country’s Commander in Chief confirmed in a Facebook post that the wreckage had been found off the coast of Launglon, in southern Myanmar, by a navy search team this morning. Nine navy ships and three air force planes had been dispatched to search for the aircraft, which disappeared yesterday as it flew from the southern city of Myeik to Yangon.

There was conflicting information on the number of people on board, but in the latest update the military said the plane was carrying a total of 122 people.

The plane lost contact with air traffic control yesterday, about half an hour after takeoff.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed sadness over the tragic loss of Myanmar’s military transport plane. In a tweet, Mr Modi said, India stands ready to help in every way in the recovery efforts.
