Dozens of people were killed in southern Laos when a plane crashed into the Mekong River.
Foreigners from some 10 countries including seven from France were among the dead, as well as Laotian nationals.
The plane belonging to state-run Lao Airlines crashed in bad weather just before it was due to land at Pakse airport.
A Lao Airlines statement on Facebook gave a total of 49 dead; other earlier reports put the figure at 44.
The statement said there was no news of any survivors so far.
