An army helicopter brings the bodies of plane crash victims to an airport in Kathmandu, Nepal, May 30, 2022.
Rescuers in Nepal have recovered the bodies of 21 of the 22 people who were on board a plane that crashed a day earlier.
The Tara Air turboprop Twin Otter lost contact with the airport tower on Sunday during a scheduled 20-minute flight over deep river gorges and mountaintops.
Recovery efforts were delayed because some bodies were pinned under the plane's wreckage.
Rescuers, working with their bare hands, had difficulty moving the metal debris.
Four Indians and two Germans were on the plane.
The three crew members and other passengers were Nepali nationals.
