A helicopter flying in bad weather has crashed in Nepal’s mountainous region, killing all seven people on board including the country’s tourism minister.

Rescuers reached the mountain site where the helicopter went down, about 400 kilometres east of Kathmandu, Home Ministry spokesman Ram Krishna Subedi said.

He said all seven on board were killed.

Government administrator Gita Kamari Rai, said it was snowing and raining at the time of the crash. Tourism Minister Rabindra Adhikari and civil aviation officials were among the victims. Adhikari, 49, had become the tourism minister in March 2018 after the Nepal Communist Party won parliamentary elections.
