Buried under snow: Mount Everest guide's avalanche ordeal

Climbers have been returning from Mount Everest base camp in Nepal, after sherpa guides cancelled all climbing this year, in memory of 16 sherpas who died in an avalanche nine days ago.

One survivor, Kaji Sherpa, is recovering after being buried under the snow for three hours.

He saw his colleagues dying under the ice, and said he will never return to Everest again. Yogita Limaye reports from Kathmandu.
