Nepalese and US military officials have confirmed that they`ve identified all eight bodies recovered from the crash site of a US Marine chopper that disappeared while delivering aid after two major earthquakes hit Nepal last week.
Nepal`s army issued a statement today saying that the bodies of the six US Marines and two Nepalese soldiers have been flown to the Himalayan nation`s capital, Kathmandu.
The wreckage of the UH-1 “Huey” was found Friday following days of intense searching in the mountains northeast of Kathmandu.
The first three charred bodies were retrieved the same day by Nepalese and US military teams, and the rest on Saturday, according to Nepal`s army.
The helicopter went missing while delivering aid on Tuesday.
