Lebanon’s state news agency says the remains of a body have been found on the rear tyres of a plane that flew from Beirut to the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

The National News Agency report says the jet from the Saudi “Nasair” company landed in Riyadh just after midnight with 130 people on board.

The remains were discovered shortly afterward during maintenance work on the plane.

The report said on Saturday that investigations were underway and a number of passengers reported seeing a man with a backpack running towards the plane before it took off.

Further details and airport officials were not immediately available.
