“It’s been four days and no one is listening to us,” said a heartbroken Madan Kumar Jaiswal as he waited outside Tribhuvan University’s medical college on Wednesday.

He said he hoped the autopsy would be completed as soon as possible so the families of the deceased could receive the remains of their loved ones.

On Monday, searchers retrieved the cockpit voice and flight data recorders. The voice recorder will be analyzed locally, but the flight data recorder will be sent to France.
