Emergency workers Find bodies of Nepal plane crash victims

KATHMANDU: Emergency workers have found the bodies of 19 people killed when their plane crashed into a mountainside in western Nepal with the loss of all 23 passengers and crew, police said on Thursday.

Police and army returned to the crash site at first light after abandoning recovery efforts late on Wednesday due to bad weather in the remote Himalayan district where the Twin Otter turboprop aircraft came down.

The site in Myagdi district is around 16,000 feet (4,900 metres) high in the Himalayas and can only be reached on foot or by helicopter.
