By Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepali police and local volunteers found the bodies of about 100 trekkers and villagers buried in an avalanche set off by last month's devastating earthquake and were digging through snow and ice for signs of dozens more missing, officials said on Monday. "Local volunteers and police personnel are digging through six-feet (deep) snow with shovels looking for more bodies," said Gautam Rimal, assistant chief district officer in the area where Langtang is located. It was not clear how many people were in Langtang at the time of the avalanche but other officials said about 120 more people could be buried under the snow. The April 25 earthquake has killed 7,276 people and wounded over 14,300, Nepal's government said.
Police shot dead two gunmen Sunday outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas attended by controversial Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders, authorities said. While no immediate claim of responsibility was made, similar depictions of the Prophet Mohammed prompted a shooting at French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in January that killed 12. The right-wing American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) organized the event in a suburb of Dallas, featuring Wilders, who has been outspoken against Muslims and is targeted by radical groups. Police said two men drove up to the conference center in Garland, Texas, and began shooting at a security guard.
