According media reports ten bodies have been pulled from the wreckage of a UN helicopter that crashed in bad weather in Nepal. The helicopter was returning with UN arms inspectors from a camp in Eastern Nepal.
Somewhat surprisingly there seems to be some confusion as to how many passengers were on board. In my experience with UN helicopter flights passenger manifests were checked repeatedly. At the time it I thought it was annoying. Now it just seems prudent.
