Police officers stand near empty coffins for victims of a plane crash, at a building of a Chinese temple, which is functioning as a temporary mortuary, in Pakse October 19, 2013. Bad weather is being blamed for the crash of a Lao Airlines plane which plunged into the Mekong river in southern Laos killing all 49 people on board, among them nationals of 10 countries. The ATR-72 turboprop plane flying from the capital Vientiane crashed at about 4.10 p.m. (0910 GMT) on Wednesday just eight km (five miles) short of its destination Pakse, which is near the borders of both Thailand and Cambodia.
