A Boeing-747 bound from Paris to Tokyo was forced to perform an emergency landing in the Khabarovsk city. According to the local police officer on duty, the landing was caused by the death of a passenger.
A group of doctors, who arrived at the site, concluded that the passenger, a Japanese citizen, died of a blood-stroke.
According to a Khabarovsk duty officer, it is still unclear when the jet will continue its flight. All passengers are currently in the local airport.
The local police department did not disclose the name of the company to which the aircraft belonged.
