Villagers look at luggage retrieved from the crash site of an ATR-72 turboprop plane, in Laos, near Pakse October 17, 2013. Bad weather is being blamed for the crash of a Laos Airlines plane which plunged into the Mekong river in southern Laos killing all 49 people on board, among them nationals of 10 countries. The plane flying from the capital Vientiane crashed at about 4.10 p.m. (10:10 a.m. BST) on Wednesday just eight km (five miles) short of its destination Pakse, which is near the borders of both Thailand and Cambodia.
