TOKYO: A Japanese plane maintenance crew has found the decaying body of a young Asian male in the wheel compartment of an All Nippon Airways passenger plane from Hong Kong, police said yesterday.. 

“They discovered the body in the left wheel compartment yesterday (Tuesday). We cannot identify him because he had neither a passport nor an ID card,” said a spokesman for Japan's Narita international airport police. 

The plane arrived at the airport from Hong Kong on Tuesday. 

“Some parts of the body were decaying. We have no idea how he managed to get into the compartment area,” the spokesman said, adding police suspected the young man had tried to enter Japan illegally. – AFP
