    All 24 people on board a helicopter chartered by the conservation group World Wildlife Fund in Nepal were killed after the aircraft crashed in bad weather two days ago, officials said Monday.
    Of the 20 passengers and four crew, 17 were Nepalis. Others included a Finnish diplomat, two Americans, a Canadian and an Australian, as well as two Russians.
    The wreckage of the Russian-made helicopter was found earlier Monday by a Nepali army team after incessant rains and fog had hampered rescue efforts.
    The army helicopter found the crashed aircraft about 2 km southwest of Ghunsa, a village in Taplejung district, about 300 km (190 miles) east of the capital, Kathmandu.
