An operation to retrieve the remaining bodies from a plane crash in a mountainous area of Nepal will resume after bad weather suspended recovery efforts, local media report.

The Twin Otter aircraft, operated by Tara Air, crashed killing all 23 people on board shortly after taking off on a flight from Pokhara to Jomsom.

Most of those on board were Nepalis.

Nepal's aviation industry has a poor safety record but it is not yet clear what caused Wednesday's crash.

The identities of those on board have yet to be released. Two of those on board were children. The plane was carrying three crew and 20 passengers, one of them Chinese and one Kuwaiti, foreign media reports.
