Nepal army: All 8 bodies found at crashed US Marine chopper

Nepal’s army says that bodies of all eight people on board the US Marine helicopter that disappeared this week during a relief mission in the earthquake-hit Himalayan nation have been recovered. Saturday’s press statement says Nepali and US military personnel are at the crash site in the mountains northeast of capital Kathmandu. The wreckage was first spotted by Nepalese troops and army helicopters Friday. The discovery followed days of intense search involving US and Nepalese aircraft and US satellites. The aircraft went missing while delivering aid on Tuesday. The helicopter was carrying six Marines and two Nepalese army soldiers.
