Nepalese troops Monday recovered 18 bodies from the snow-blanketed wreckage of a plane that crashed into a hillside, the latest disaster to hit the country's internationally-blacklisted airlines.Body parts and debris from the Nepal Airlines plane, which was carrying 15 passengers and three crew, were found scattered in a village next to the scene of Sunday's crash in the mountainous west of the country, a police official at the scene said.Officials dug through snow that had blanketed passengers' bodies overnight in Arghakhanchi district, 226 kilometres (140 miles) west of the capital, local police official Kiran Khatri told AFP.In September 2012 19 people, including seven Britons and four Chinese, were killed after an Everest-bound plane crashed minutes after taking off from Kathmandu in an accident which the government blamed on a panic-stricken pilot.
