Passenger plane makes emergency landing in Nepal

KATHMANDU: A passenger plane with 11 people on board made an emergency landing in western Nepal on Friday, but there were no immediate reports of fatalities, an official said.

The incident came two days after a Twin Otter turboprop plane crashed into a mountainside in Nepal killing all 23 people on board.

“The plane made a forced landing in Kalikot,” aviation official Pratap Babu Tiwari told AFP, referring to a district in western Nepal.
