Rescuers searched for bodies on Thursday after a Lao Airlines plane carrying dozens of people, about half of them foreigners, crashed in the Mekong River with everybody on board believed dead.

 

Seven French citizens, six Australians and five Thais were among those thought to have been killed when the turboprop ATR-72 came down on Wednesday near Pakse airport in Champasak province.

 

"The search and rescue is still going on in Pakse," Thai foreign ministry spokesman Sek Wannamethee told AFP.
