Air Bagan said that is has located the black box of a plane that crashed on Christmas Day, killing two people and injuring around a dozen others. The plane, which was carrying 65 passengers, including 48 foreign tourists, crashed in a rice paddy near the Heho Airport in southern Shan State. Air Bagan said it would send the black box to Singapore to study the cause of the crash, which was initially blamed on heavy fog.
