Seoul: A Seoul court Friday ordered a Cambodian airline to pay 3.2 billion won (USD 2.8 million) in compensation to the families of passengers who died in a 2007 plane crash, sources said.

PMTair's Antonov An-24 crashed in southern Cambodia in June 2007 on its way to the beach resort town of Sihanoukville from Angkor International Airport in Siem Reap.

All 44 passengers aboard were killed in the accident, including 13 tourists from South Korea.

Eleven family members of the deceased had filed a suit in 2008 seeking 4.5 billion won in compensation, claiming the accident was caused by defects in the small passenger plane as well mistakes by pilots and the local control tower.
