KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Rescuers on Monday resumed the search in Nepal for four people still missing after the Himalayan nation’s deadliest plane crash in 30 years, authorities said.

Rescue teams recovered 68 bodies from the 72 people on board the ATR 72 plane operated by Yeti Airlines that crashed in the resort city of Pokhara minutes before landing on Sunday in clear weather.

The plane, on a scheduled flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, near the Annapurna mountain range, was carrying 57 Nepalis, five Indians, four Russians, two South Koreans and one person from Argentina, Ireland, Australia and France.

Pokhara Police Officer Ajay KC said the search and rescue operation, which was halted on Sunday due to darkness, has resumed.

«We will remove the five bodies from the gorge and search for the remaining four that are still missing,» he told Reuters.

The other 63 bodies had been sent to a hospital, he said.

Rescuers were also searching for the black boxes, a cockpit voice recorder and a flight data recorder, while searching for survivors, said Jagannath Niroula, a spokesman for Nepal’s civil aviation authority.

Nepal declared a day of national mourning on Monday and set up a panel to investigate the disaster and suggest measures to prevent such tragedies in the future.

Authorities said the bodies will be released to families after identification and examination.

Almost 350 people have he died since 2000 in plane or helicopter crashes in Nepal, home to eight of the world’s 14 highest mountains, including Everest, where sudden weather changes can create dangerous conditions.
