Nepal widens mountain rescue effort

Search for dozens of missing trekkers in Nepal widens, but erratic weather sets back efforts by rescuers.

    The search for dozens of missing trekkers in Nepal has been widened, four days after a deadly snowstorm hit the Annapurna region of Nepal.

    At least 29 people have been killed by extreme weather and avalanches.

    Al Jazeera's Subina Shrestha reports on the rescue efforts from Nepal's Mustang Valley.
