A Bangladeshi plane with 67 passengers on board crashed near Kathmandu airport Monday as it was coming in to land, officials said, as firefighters battled to extinguish the burning wreckage and rescue passengers. Plumes of black smoke could be seen rising from the football pitch where the plane crashed, to the east of the runway at Nepal's only international airport, in the capital Kathmandu."There were 67 passengers and 4 crew members" aboard the plane, said airport spokesman Prem Nath Thakur."So far 20 injured have been taken to the hospital. Police and army are trying to cut apart the plane to rescue others," he added.
