KATHMANDU, Nepal – Nepalese and U.S. military officials say they've identified all eight bodies recovered from the crash site of a U.S. Marine helicopter that disappeared while delivering aid after two major earthquakes hit Nepal.
Nepal's army said in a statement Sunday that the bodies of the six U.S. 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 U.S. military teams, and the rest on Saturday, according to Nepal's army.
The helicopter went missing while delivering aid on Tuesday.
