Nepal Annapurna: Search ends for surviving trekkers

Rescue teams in Nepal say that there are now no trekkers left stranded after completing their search for survivors of a devastating Himalayan storm.

The focus now is on recovering bodies buried in the snow, a government spokesman told the BBC.

It is unclear how many people may still be missing in the country's worst-ever trekking disaster.

At least 39 people are known to have died, and nearly 400 people have been rescued from the Annapurna trail.

Andrew North reports from Kathmandu.
