An “ageing” Fokker-100 plane carrying 65 passengers crash-landed in Eastern Shan in Myanmar on Tuesday, killing two people and injured 11 others, to include foreign tourists.

“One passenger who was missing was found dead inside the plane. We are still trying to identify who the dead passenger is,” a report said quoting Air Bagan carrier announcement posted on its Facebook page.

Myanmar information ministry officials said the victim was an 11-year-old child, adding four other foreigners were among those injured.

The plane was forced to make an emergency landing three kilometres from Heho airport, the gateway to the popular tourist destination of Inle Lake, AFP reports said.
