Mt. Everest Avalanche Kills at Least 12

An avalanche has killed at least 12 Sherpa guides on Mt. Everest. The guides were fixing ropes for other climbers to scale the mountain early next month when they were killed. Rescue workers pulled the 12 bodies from under mounds of snow and ice. They’re still searching for three other guides who are missing. Another two were injured and were flown by helicopter to hospitals.
