1,000 EU citizens missing in Nepal quake


Nepalm21430495302CC News: At least 1,000 EU citizens are still missing in Nepal, nearly a week after an earthquake that killed more than 6,000 people in the country.

Up to 1,000 Europeans are missing, mostly around popular trekking routes, the head of the European Union (EU) delegation in Nepal said on Friday.

The officials also say, many are hoped to be alive in isolated areas cut off by the quake.

Nepal has called for more foreign help, particularly aircraft, as survivors grow desperate for humanitarian aid.
