Nepal plane crash in bad weather killed all 18 on board
By Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - All 18 people aboard a small plane that crashed in bad weather in Nepal were killed, an army spokesman said on Monday, after searchers battled heavy rain and harsh winds to reach the rugged site the day after the event. The crash highlights the poor safety record of Nepal, where more than a dozen airlines fly to nearly 50 airports, many in remote hills and mountains shrouded in cloud and cut off from roads. "All 18 dead bodies have been found," army spokesman Jagadish Pokharel told Reuters. Many parts of Nepal experienced rain this weekend, with snow covering some mountainous areas.
