NEW DELHI, May 14 (Xinhua) — India condoled the death of 15 people including 13 Indians in a plane crash at a mountain in northern Nepal on Monday.

“I am deeply saddened to hear about the tragic air crash that occurred earlier this morning near Jomsom airport in Nepal,” Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said in a message.

“I would like to convey my deep condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives in the accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who have lost their near and dear ones,” he added.

The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu has set up a round-the-clock helpline to provide information about the crash.

A dornier aircraft, carrying 21 people, crashed as it tried to land at Jomsom airport considered to be one of the most dangerous airstrips in the world. While 15 people died on the spot, six passengers miraculously survived.
