Families of guides killed last month in an avalanche on Mount Everest say that help promised by the government is not coming fast enough.

The accident two weeks ago killed 16 Sherpas, many of whom were primary breadwinners for their families in a country that suffers from widespread poverty.

The government has said it will give up to $10,000 in compensation to families of the victims but some have received no payments so far.
