Nepal’s state-run airline has sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, after technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft.
Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks because of the problem.
The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft on Sunday at Nepal’s only international airport, in Kathmandu, in accordance with Hindu traditions, a senior airline official said.
"The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights,” said Raju K.C.
