One of the two passengers killed in the crash involving South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines at San Francisco airport is a Chinese passport holder, South Korea's foreign ministry said today.
But the South Korean Transport Ministry said today two dead passengers are Chinese nationals.
"We sent an official at our San Francisco consulate general to where dead bodies were placed. According to the verification by a coroner there, one [of the two killed] held Chinese passport. The remaining one has yet to be identified as the autopsy was not done, " Lee Jung Gwan, a senior official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told an emergency news briefing, XInhua reported.
Lee expected a number of Chinese to be injured as 141 Chinese citizens were among the 291 passengers aboard the Asiana Airlines flight that crash-landed at the San Francisco International Airport on Saturday.
