Nepal avalanche: At least 6 trekkers missing

Jan 18, 2020 22:02 IST

At least six people have gone missing after an avalanche hit a trekking route on a Himalayan mountain in north-west Nepal. Officials say four South Koreans - all volunteer teachers - and at least two Nepali guides are among those missing. The avalanche struck near a base camp in the Annapurna region after heavy snowfall on Friday. While a number of trekkers have been rescued from the site, poor weather conditions and sub zero temperatures have hampered efforts.
