BEIJING, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- An aircraft which crashed in northeastern China's Liaoning Province Tuesday might be a plane of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), sources with China's relevant government department said Wednesday.
The preliminary judgement was based on the situation of the crash site, sources said.
"The aircraft crashed into a civilian makeshift house, leaving no Chinese dead or injured. The pilot died on the spot," the sources said.
China is communicating with the DPRK regarding the issue.
