An aircraft that crashed in Northeast China's Liaoning Province on Tuesday has been confirmed to be a military plane from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The aircraft crashed in Fushun County, just 200 kilometers from the China-DPRK border. According to photos taken by witnesses at the scene, the DPRK flag can be seen on the tail of the plane. The aircraft struck a civilian makeshift house, but caused no casualties.

The pilot, however, died on the spot. Investigators say the accident was caused by mechanical failure. China and the DPRK have reached consensus on coping with the aftermath. The DPRK side has also expressed regret to China for the crash.
