KATHMANDU, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- A total of 13 bodies were found at the site where a Nepal Airlines Corporation owned twin otter crashed, an aviation official said on Monday.

The 9N-ABB plane, with 18 people aboard, got missed Sunday afternoon, and its wreckage was found Monday morning a few kilometers from Khidim, a small town in Arghakhachi district, southern Nepal.

"The dead bodies of 13 passengers have been recovered from the site," Bhesh Raj Subedi, an official at Nepal's aviation regulator Civil Aviation Authority told Xinhua by phone.

All the 18 people aboard the ill-fated plane, including three crew members, one child and a Danish national, are feared to be dead, Subedi said.
