SEOUL, July 22 (Yonhap) -- An airplane of North Korea's flag carrier Air Koryo made an emergency landing in the Chinese city of Shenyang on Friday due to fire, a Chinese report said.

The flight en route from Pyongyang to Beijing "made a forced landing in China's northeastern city of Shenyang because the plane caught fire," said Xinhua News Agency, citing a passenger on board.

Referring to flight tracking websites, Japan's Kyodo News later added that the Tupolev Tu-204 plane "diverted shortly after crossing over the border between the two countries at around 8:25 a.m. (Chinese time)" before landing at Shenyang's Taoxian International Airport at 8:50 a.m.
