Search efforts resume as death toll from Nepal snowstorm expected to rise

Emergency teams resumed searches on Friday morning for survivors of a deadly avalanche in Nepal that has claimed the lives of at least three Israelis so far.
Blizzards in the Annapurna mountain route killed at least 20 people while the death toll was expected to rise further with so many unaccounted for after snowstorms brought by the tail end of a cyclone that struck eastern India last weekend.
The Israeli fatalities were named as Lt. Tamar Ariel, 24, from Kibbutz Masuot Yitzhak, Agam Luria, 23, from Kibbutz Yifat, and Nadav Shoham, 30, from Hoshaya.
