BODIES OF FOREIGNERS FOUND AMONG 51 IN NEPAL QUAKE,100 STILL MISSING

Labels:

KATHMANDU, Nepal - Nepali police and local volunteers found the bodies of about 100 trekkers and villagers, including those of six foreigners buried in an avalanche set off by last month’s devastating earthquake and were digging through snow and ice for signs of dozens more missing, officials said on Monday.
Another 100 foreign tourists are still feared to be missing in Langtang in the wake of the 7.8-magnitude-quake that struck on April 25 and claimed more than 7,000 lives.
The bodies were recovered on Saturday and Sunday at the Langtang village, 60 kilometers (40 miles) north of Kathmandu, which is on a trekking route popular with Westerners.
The entire village, which includes 55 guesthouses for trekkers, was wiped out by the avalanche, officials said.
