A 62-year-old Israeli man was killed Sunday, and his wife and son were lightly injured, in a car accident in Myanmar on Sunday.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the man and his wife traveled to Myanmar to join their son who was traveling in the East. Israel's embassy in Myanmar is assisting the family, and making arrangements to return the body to Israel for burial.

Last week, a 22-year-old Israeli was killed in a car crash in Mexico, and last month 22-year-old Or Asraf was killed in the earthquake that devastated Nepal.
