Families mourn Everest avalanche victims

Sherpa guides go on strike demanding danger money, with families of the dead and the missing still in shock in Nepal.

    Sherpa guides in Nepal are refusing to climb Mount Everest until they are paid danger money.

    Thirteen Sherpas were killed by an avalanche on Friday. Rescuers are still searching for three missing guides who are presumed dead. And friends and family are in shock, unable to take in the events of nearly a week ago.
