Aviation law experts representing the loved ones of passengers killed in a plane crash in Nepal last September have revealed their concerns over reports of another crash in the country (on 16 May) which left several people on board seriously injured.

A Twin Otter aircraft carrying 21 passengers and crew, including eight tourists from Japan, crashed during its attempt to land at Jomson Airport in the country on May 16th. All of the others on board are believed to be Nepalese. Investigations are now underway to determine the cause.
