All 22 passengers and crew on board a small passenger plane that crashed in mountainous eastern Nepal were killed, police said on Thursday, after a rescue team reached the site.

"We have recovered 20 bodies. We are still searching for the other two, but we can be sure there are no survivors," police spokesman Bigyan Raj Sharma told AFP following the crash on Wednesday afternoon.

"The aircraft has broken up completely and is scattered over 200 metres of dense forest."
