The Deadliest Aircraft Crash In Nepal In Decades Has Left The Country In Mourning


On Monday, Nepal held a day of mourning for the 67 individuals who lost their lives in the country’s biggest aviation catastrophe in three decades.

Police have confirmed that a Yeti Airlines ATR 72 carrying 72 passengers crashed into a rocky valley on Sunday as it was approaching Pokhara, the centre city of Nepal.

Late Sunday night, soldiers using ropes and stretchers recovered remains from the 300-meter (1,000-foot) deep ravine, continuing on Monday.

On Monday, police officer AK Chhetri said, “We have so far sent 63 bodies to the hospital.”

“The search has been put on hold because of the fog. When the weather clears in one or two hours, we will continue the search.”
