Nepal Earthquake: Just When Things Couldn't Get Any Worse

Bad weather has cut links with a remote village in Nepal where dozens of villagers and trekkers are believed to be buried under an avalanche set off by last month's devastating earthquake. The death toll from the April 25 earthquake in the Himalayan nation has reached 7,557. About 100 bodies were recovered on Saturday and Sunday at Langtang village, 60 km 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 and rescuers are digging in the snow for signs of about 120 others believed buried.
