Dozens have been rescued

At least 50 people have been killed after a plane crashed and burst into flames in Nepal.

The US-Bangla Airlines aircraft was attempting to land at Kathmandu Airport when it veered off the runway and crashed into a nearby football pitch.

Dozens of people have been rescued but the army says the chances of saving anyone else are slim because the plane was badly burned.

67 passengers and four crew members were on board the flight, which is believed to have taken off from Dhaka in Bangladesh.
