KATHMANDU, Nepal - The search for one of the 72 people killed in the Pokhara plane crash is continuing, according to the Nepali Army.

Rescue teams have already recovered the bodies of 71 people killed in the crash, with one person still missing, according to Army spokesperson Krishna Prasad Bhandari.

Even though the Kaski District Security Committee ended the search on January 21, he said the Army had continued its search.
