Nineteen die in Nepal plane crash
Seven Britons were among 19 people killed when a plane heading for the Everest region crashed in Nepal's capital, the Foreign Office has said.
The plane, operated by Nepal's domestic airline Sita Air, came down minutes after take-off from Kathmandu.
Officials said it crashed into a river bank and caught fire.
Aviation officials said five Chinese nationals and seven Nepalis, of whom three were crew members, were on the twin-propeller Dornier.
