Less likely to die in a plane in 2011

Good news: The year 2011 hit a record in terms of plane crashes: where 94 accidents happened in 2010, only 92 occured last year! That's a -2% decrease, which is not sensational but worth mentioning.

The more positive numbers are for Western-built aircrafts, whose accidents dropped from 17 in 2010 to 11 in 2011. The African aircrafts also experienced a sharp increase in security: Only 8 accidents in 2011, compared to 18 in 2010.

So if Western- and Africa-built planes are seeing a sharp drop of accidents, which geographical zone has experienced a sharp increase of accidents, since the total number of crashes hasn't really changed since last year?
