Topic: Bad weather disrupts links with avalanche-hit Nepal village


By Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - 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, officials said on Tuesday. The death toll from the April 25 quake in the Himalayan nation has reached 7,566, and over 14,500 people were injured, the government said. About 100 bodies were recovered on Saturday and Sunday at Langtang village, 60 km (37 miles) north of Kathmandu, which is on a trekking route popular with Westerners. Gautam Rimal, assistant chief district officer in the area where Langtang is located, said authorities had not made contact with Langtang for more 24 hours because of bad weather.
