69 confirmed dead from plane crash in Nepal

At least 69 people have been confirmed dead after Sunday's plane crash in Nepal.

The Yeti Airlines flight with 72 passengers and crew crashed into a gorge near the resort city of Pokhara.

Airline officials said that as of Monday, 69 bodies had been recovered. The search for three others still missing would continue into Tuesday.

It remains unclear what caused the crash. Footage released by Reuters news agency showed the plane suddenly tilting to the left while descending. The aircraft is believed to have crashed soon afterward.
