Sad news as 68 people dies from plane crash

According to the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, at least 68 persons were killed when a domestic flight crashed in the Pokhara region yesterday (Sunday).

According to the Voice of America, the crash is the worst plane crash in Nepal in 30 years, according to authorities.

Many Nepalese rescue workers were searching the hillside where the Yeti Airlines flight from Kathmandu, the capital, had crashed.

Rescue personnel were seen scrambling around damaged portions of the plane, and some of the ground around the crash scene was charred, with licks of flame evident.

According to the Aviation Safety Network database, this is Nepal’s deadliest incident since 1992, when a Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A300 crashed into a hillside on approach to Kathmandu, killing all 167 on board.
