Tire Bursts as Plane Carrying MPs Lands

The rear tire of a Thai Airways flight burst Friday, as the plane, which was carrying a delegation of parliamentarians, landed in Phnom Penh, officials said.

Among the 147 passengers and 13 crew members were National Assembly President Heng Samrin and 30 more parliamentarians.

The delegation was returning from an official trip to New Zealand and had transited through Bangkok, the Associated Press reported.

The cause of the burst tire was not immediately known.
