Remnants of China's biggest rocket have crashed into the Indian Ocean, with the bulk of its components destroyed upon re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere, according to Chinese state media.
It is one of the largest pieces of space debris to return to Earth, with experts estimating its dry mass to be around 18 to 22 tonnes.
Parts of the Long March 5B rocket re-entered the atmosphere and landed at a location with the coordinates longitude 72.47 degrees east and latitude 2.65 degrees north, Chinese state media cited the China Manned Space Engineering Office as saying.
The coordinates put the point of impact in the ocean somewhere south-west of India and Sri Lanka.
Most of the debris was burnt up in the atmosphere, it said.
