Monkey menace at TIA

Monkey menace at TIA

Tribhuvan International Airport, which usually struggles with problems of bird hits, saw on Wednesday a troop of more than 15 monkeys on its runway and domestic terminal building areas posing a security threat to the flight operations. TIA officials and security personnel tried to chase the monkeys away from the runway, but once they jumped on the terminal roof, no one could do anything for nearly a half an hour, eyewitnesses said. Airport officials were not available to comment. — HNS
