Nineteen dead in Nepal plane crash

Emergency services sift through the wreckage of a plane, which crashed shortly after takeoff in the Nepalese capital killing all 19 people on board. Seven British and five Chinese passengers were travelling on the plane when it crashed close to Kathmandu airport. Nepali passengers and three crew members were among the dead. The black box was recovered from the scene as the authorities begin an investigation into what caused the aircraft to crash. Officials said the weather was clear at the time of takeoff. The plane, owned by Sita Air, was on its way to an area in the Mount Everest region. Autumn is the peak tourism season in Nepal, which has eight of the world's 14 highest mountains.
