Deadly Everest avalanche triggered by Nepal earthquake
25.04.2015. - Stipe Božić
At least 13 people were killed on Everest on Saturday as a massive avalanche – triggered by an earthquake near the Nepalese capital Kathmandu – swept through base camp.
The avalanche trapped other climbers higher on the mountain as those in base camp ran for their lives to escape falling ice and rock.
Pictures from Everest south-side base camp showed flattened tents and blocks of rock scattered around a site dusted deep in snow. The avalanche appeared to have swept through the mid section of the strung-out base camp.
