Australians killed in Nepal plane crash

Two Australians were among 18 people killed in a plane crash in Nepal.

The plane caught fire as it tried to land on a small runway at Lukla's Tenzing-Hillary Airport in foggy conditions.

12 German tourists and 4 Nepalese people were also killed and only the pilot survived.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says the Australian Embassy in Kathmandu is trying to find out more information about the crash.
