Plane with aid for Nepal leaves Prague

A Czech government plane with 10 rescuers and four medics on board as well as tonnes of humanitarian aid took off from Prague on Friday night bound for Nepal. The humanitarian flight from the Czech Republic will in part allow some of the current aid workers on site since the end of April to be replaced. Space on the return flight has been earmarked for others seeking to evacuate the earthquake hit country. So far 22 places have been filled, mostly by citizens not from the Czech Republic.
