In a statement on Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi voiced regret and condolences to government and people of Bangladesh, as well as the bereaved families of victims, over the death of a number of people on board of a US-Bangla Airlines plane that crashed while trying to land at Kathmandu airport in Nepal.

Among the passengers were 33 Nepali nationals, 32 Bangladeshis, one Chinese national and one Maldivian national, CAAN Tribhuvan International Airport Office said at a press conference this evening.

The airline and airport authorities have blamed each other in the aftermath of Monday's aviation disaster, the worst suffered by the Himalayan country since a 1992 Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) crash that claimed 167 lives, a report of The Himalayan Times said.

In the recording of the communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller, the pilot asks just before landing, "Are we cleared to land?"

Nepal PM KP Oli on Monday said a commission will be formed to investigate the cause of the crash. We were all scared that everything was done in front of our eyes, "said a woman who was on another plane at the same airport". Meanwhile, the chief executive officer of US-Bangla Airlines, Imran Asif, accused Kathmandu's air traffic control for giving wrong signals. Sultan is a former Bangladesh Air Force pilot and was also a flying instructor with the airline, AP reported.

The private Bangladeshi airlines say confusion over communication between the airport control tower and the pilot might have caused the mishap as the message from the tower was puzzling.

Air traffic control can initially be heard clearing the plane to land from the southern approach. She said it was unclear if it had reached the runway when it landed. The plane crashed during a second attempt to land after an unexpected turn in the cloudy weather, they added.

The plane was then seen circling twice in a northeast direction, Chettri said. "Once the tower officials noticed the plane on Runway 02 location, they again communicated with the captain for the clearance", he said, adding that the captain, however, replied he was on the right track.
