Topic: Thousands still missing after Nepal quake

By Rupam Jain Nair and Sanjeev Miglani KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Thousands of people were still missing in Nepal on Friday as food and help began to trickle through to those stranded in remote areas after last week's earthquake which killed 6,250. Up to 1,000 Europeans are still unaccounted for, mostly around popular trekking routes, the head of the European Union (EU) delegation in Nepal said. "We don't know where they are, or they could be," Ambassador Rensje Teerink told reporters. Nepal's home ministry said it had not been informed that the number of EU citizens missing after Saturday's earthquake could be as high as 1,000.
