‘We have been deeply involved with the coordinating since the crash happened’
 The Bangladesh Ambassador to Nepal said her embassy has been “deeply involved” with the coordination effort following the crash of US-Bangla flight 211 at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu on Monday. Ambassador Mashfee Binte Shams told a press conference in Kathmandu on Tuesday that 10 Bangladeshi survivors were being treated in three different hospitals in the Nepalese capital. “I have personally met with the survivors and doctors,” she said. “The doctors said two people are in a critical condition.” The ambassador said the Bangladesh embassy has been coordinating with the relatives of the survivors and victims as they have been arriving in Nepal. “We have opened a coordination cell at the embassy to accommodate and brief the relatives and we have also provided transportation for them to visit the hospitals and morgues,” she said.

“One of my officers has been coordinating with morgues so that the dead can be identified quickly and be handed over to their relatives.” She added that the director general (sic) from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs arrived in Kathmandu on Tuesday and was communicating with the Nepali authorities to send the deceased back to Bangladesh on an An Air Force aircraft. In terms of the medical expenses for the survivors, Ambassador Mashfee Binte Shams said it had not been finalized if the government or US-Bangla will bear the costs. “However, there is no need to worry about this now because ultimately somebody will take care of the finances,” she said. The Bangladesh ambassador praised the response of the emergency services to Monday’s tragedy. “You must realize that an incident like this has not happened in Nepal in the last 25 years; there is only so much one can be prepared to handle such a situation,” she said. “But the Nepali authorities including the army, fire brigade, police, and all first responders have done an exceptional and efficient job.”
