Topic: Eight bodies recovered from wreckage of U.S. helicopter in Nepal


By Ross Adkin KATHMANDU (Reuters) - The bodies of eight soldiers have been recovered from the wreckage of a U.S. military helicopter lost on an earthquake relief mission in Nepal high on a mountainside, Nepali officials said on Saturday. The remains would soon be transferred to Kathmandu, Jagadish Pokharel, a spokesman for the Nepali army said. Six U.S. marines and two Nepali soldiers were on the helicopter when it went missing while distributing aid on Tuesday, the day a strong aftershock hit Nepal. "Together we mourn as our nation and the Federal Republic of Nepal have lost eight courageous men," said Admiral Samuel J. Locklear, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command.
