News that another plane has crashed in Nepal is appearing on the wires just two days after a passenger jet carrying 23 people went down in the jungle.
Two pilots of a plane carrying nine people have been killed, according to early reports, with all passengers reported injured.
Kathmandu news outlets have reported that Pilot Dinesh Neupane and Co-pilot Santosh Rana died in the incident after the aircraft crash landed at Chilakhaya 2, Jigeli.
The aircraft had taken off at 12:30pm from Nepalgunj today.
The crash comes just days after a Tara Airlines jet crashed in a jungle in the Kekarko Butta district which raised concerns about the safety of Nepal’s aviation industry.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
