Manaslu avalanche: Search resumes for missing climbers

A search operation has resumed in Nepal for climbers missing on Mount Manaslu, where an avalanche killed at least eight people on Sunday.

Poor weather had forced the suspension of earlier rescue efforts.

Eight bodies and 10 injured people have been flown to the capital, Kathmandu, a local police officer told the BBC. He said three people were still missing.

Emily Buchanan reports.
