Two Israeli trekkers trapped on a Himalayan pass that has been inaccessible since a blizzard struck the Annapurna mountain this week were rescued on Friday, as emergency teams continued their search for survivors.

At least 150 people were injured in the deadly avalanche which has left 29 dead.

Israeli insurance company Harel has rescued 60 Israeli hikers so far from the Annapurna peak, where several people have been killed.
