The Indonesian ambassador who was among those wounded in the crash of a military helicopter in Pakistan earlier this month, died on Tuesday in a Singapore hospital, Indonesian President Joko Widodo said.

Ambassador Burhan Muhmmad, 58, died while undergoing treatment in the Singapore General Hospital since May 12, said Widodo, making him the third foreign envoy killed in the accident, Xinhua reported.

Widodo extended heartfelt condolences to the ambassador’s family and relatives.

"I deeply mourn (the death). Hopefully the family members can be strong to face this," he said before a cabinet meeting at the State Palace.
