On Monday, rescuers collected 21 dead from the crash scene, with the last body discovered on Tuesday morning.

The remains were strewn over a 100-meter radius from the primary crash area, according to Tara Air spokeswoman Bartaula.
According to Bartaula, the plane smashed into the hillside, shattering into pieces and scattering the victims all over the slope.
