Rescue teams were on Thursday making the grim discovery of bodies and aircraft parts after a Chinese made plane went missing off the southern coast of Myanmar with at least 120 people on board.
Four children were among the ten bodies which have been found by navy and civilian ships after the Shaanxi Y-8-200F aircraft vanished on Wednesday, Myanmar's military said on Thursday. Other reports said 20 bodies have already been brought ashore.
The military transport plane, which disappeared en route from Myeik to Myanmar s largest city, Yangon, was carrying 35 soldiers and their families, which included 15 children, Reuters news agency said.
Reuters said the total number of passengers was 122, which included 14 crew members, while other reports said 120 people were on the plane.
The plane lost contact  about half and hour after takeoff while flying at 18,000 feet (5,485 metres) over the Andaman Sea, the military said.
