A Janakpur-Kathmandu Buddha Air flight has been cancelled after a mouse has turned up on board the plane. The aircraft was ready to take off when passengers spotted the mouse.

Now, a check is underway for any technical issues at the hands of a team of engineers, said Jagannath Niraula, the spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal. The flight was scheduled at 9:15 am with 49 passengers on board.
