Helicopter crash kills four in Nepal


Kathmandu: Nepalese troops recovered four bodies after a helicopter crashed Tuesday in a region devastated by twin quakes in recent weeks, the army said. “A Mountain Air helicopter has crashed in Sindhupalchowk district, our troops have reached the site and found four bodies,” said Major-General Binoj Basnyat.

The rugged terrain in Nepal is accessed by the helicopters to drop relief material in the quake hit country. Earlier a US marine helicopter also crashed killing all eight US and Nepali soldiers on board the helicopter.
