US-Bangla flight crash: 13 medical students were on board

The US-Bangla Airlines plane that crashed at Tribhuvan International Airport in Nepal included 13 Nepali students of a medical college in Sylhet(Bangladesh).

 

According to the authorities of the Ragib-Rabeya Medical College, the Nepali students – 11 female and two male - were returning to Kathmandu on Monday after appearing their  final (MBBS) examinations.

 

Principal Abed Hossain, however, could not inform about the fate of the students.

 

According to BBC, a plane carrying 71 passengers and crew has crashed on landing at Nepal's Kathmandu airport, killing 49 people.

 

Rescuers pulled bodies from the charred wreckage of the plane, operated by Bangladeshi airline US-Bangla, after a raging fire was put out.
