YANGON: Search crews in Myanmar have now recovered the bodies of nearly half of those who died in last week's military plane crash, the army said today.
The Chinese-made Shaanxi Y8 aircraft was carrying 122 people -- soldiers, crew members and children and other relatives of servicemen -- when it plunged into the Andaman Sea on Wednesday.
Navy ships and fishing vessels have been battling strong monsoon swells to find victims, with the army saying they had recovered 59 by today afternoon.
"The number of dead bodies found in total is now 59," the commander in chief's office said in a statement, adding 26 victims were pulled from the water today.
