KATHMANDU (TIP): 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 Feb 25. 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. “We are on a search mission here to find the bodies of all the victims,” police superintendent Chhabi Lal Joshi told AFP by phone from the site of the crash, the latest in a series of fatal aviation accidents in the impoverished Himalayan nation.
