Yeti Airlines plane carrying 72 people crashes in Nepal

A plane carrying 72 people crashed in Pokhara, western Nepal, on Sunday, an airport official said, while state television reported bodies had been found.

The twin-engine ATR 72 plane operated by Yeti Airlines was en route from Kathmandu, capital of the small Himalayan country, said the official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Local television showed thick black smoke billowing from the crash site as rescue workers and crowds of people gathered around the wreckage of the plane.
