US-Bangla Plane crash: Government declares Thursday as ‘mourning day’

The government has declared Thursday as a ‘mourning day’ in memory of the victims of the US-Bangla Airlines plane crash in Kathmandu.

 

The decision was taken at an emergency meeting held at the Prime Minister's Office with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair on Wednesday.

 

According to the decision, special prayers will be held at all religious institutions and worship places, including mosques, temples, churches and pagodas across the country on Friday.

 

At least 49 people, including 26 Bangladeshi nationals, were killed as the US-Bangla Airlines aircraft crashed and burst into flames at Tribhuvan International Airport in the capital of Himalayan county Nepal on Monday.
