    According to Fanindra Mani Pokharel, a senior official at Nepal’s Ministry of Home Affairs, a passenger plane operated by Nepal-based Yeti Airlines crashed near Pokhara, a popular tourist destination and the administrative headquarters for the Kaski district, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) west of Kathmandu.
