Jakarta, May 20 – Indonesian President Joko Widodo (R) accompanied by his Vice President Jusuf Kalla (C) walk past Indonesian Ambassador Burhan Muhammad’s coffin during a ceremony held yesterday in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Indonesian ambassador Burhan Muhammad, who was injured in a helicopter crash in Pakistan this month, died on 19 May 2015, in a Singapore hospital, the ministry said.
The Pakistani military helicopter was carrying diplomats to the north of the country on 08 May when it crashed and burst into flames, authorities said. The crash also killed the ambassadors of Norway and the Philippines, the wife of the Malaysian ambassador, two pilots and a crew member.
The Pakistani Taliban insurgent group claimed responsibility but the government said a technical fault in the tail was to blame.
