A passenger plane with at least 67 passengers has crashed at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in the Nepali capital, Kathmandu, with thick, black smoke seen rising from the grounds, according to media reports.
The US-Bangla airlines “caught fire after it careened off the runway during landing and crashed onto a football ground near TIA”, the Kathmandu Post reported on Monday.
The plane took off from the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, to the Himalayan capital.
Images posted on social media showed workers at the airport standing at the runway and grounds, as smoke is seen in the background.
