The search for four South Korean hikers and their Nepali guides in the Himalayas continues for a sixth straight day.
Special forces from Nepal's military have been deployed, while drone equipment has also been mobilized to inspect the site on Mount Annapurna where they went missing in an avalanche.
The missing South Koreans were in Nepal as part of a teachers' volunteer group working with local children.
Search efforts have been underway since the weekend, but have been at times hindered by bad weather.
Meanwhile, six South Koreans who are also part of the volunteer group returned home this morning, and they'll be getting counseling and support.
