     China's insurance regulator said Wednesday that Chinese life insurers were expected to pay claims of 14.87 million yuan (2.19 million U.S. dollars) involving those killed in an air crash in northeast China on Tuesday.

    Twenty-seven of the 42 killed in the crash were covered by 14 insurance companies, including PICC Group and subsidiaries PICC Property and Casualty and PICC Life, as well as China Pacific Property, said the China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) in a statement on its website.

    The aircraft had fuselage coverage and general single-limit insurance with PICC Property and Casualty, China Pacific Property and Ping An Property, and the Lindu Airport, where the accident occurred, had airport liability coverage, according to the statement.

    It gave no figures for the estimated claims the insurers would have to pay for the aircraft and the airport.

    Ninety-six people were aboard when the Brazilian-made Embraer E-190 crashed as it approached Lindu Airport in Yichun City, Heilongjiang Province.
