Than Shwe's family in Laos

Mizzima News (www.mizzima.com)

September 27, 2007 - With rumours of Burma's military supremo Senior General Than Shwe's family fleeing to a foreign country making the rounds, among Burmese people, a chartered Air Bagan flight was spotted in Laos' capital city of Vientiane, an eyewitness told Mizzima.

The chartered Air Bagan flight carrying eight special passengers landed in Vientiane at 6 p.m (local time) on Thursday. Air Bagan is owned by Than Shwe's right hand business tycoon Tayza.

A source close to the Burmese military generals said the passengers were close relatives of Than Shwe including his wife Daw Kyaing Kyaing.

Than Shwe's family is on a visit to Laos, the source added.
