KATHMANDU, (Reuters) – Rescue workers recovered badly burnt bodies from the wreckage of a Bangladeshi aircraft that crashed while coming in to land at Nepal‘s Kathmandu airport on Monday, a Reuters witness said.
There were 71 people on board the plane and 17 had been rescued, an airport official said earlier. The number of dead and injured was not known.
