Myanmar recovers more bodies from crashed military plane

Myanmar rescuers have recovered the bodies of about half of the passengers on board a military plane that went missing after it crashed into the Andaman Sea last week, the army said on Monday.

The Chinese-made transport plane crashed into the sea last Wednesday when it was carrying 122 soldiers, family members and crew on a weekly flight from several coastal towns to Myanmar's largest city, Yangon. According to the military source, the number of bodies retrieved so far rose to 62 on Monday as the hunt for the plane stretched into a sixth day.

Myanmar's Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing said the crashed plane was expected to be found soon as it crashed in the country's territory and some evidences were collected.
