Photographs emerge of deadly avalanche on Mount Everest

Injured survivors from the deadly avalanche on Mt. Everest have been taken to Kathmandu.

At least 17 people were killed at the base camp on Saturday and searches for further victims are ongoing.

Reports from the area say aftershocks on Sunday have also caused new avalanches.

It is thought there were as many as 1,000 climbers and sherpas on the mountain when the first avalanche struck.

The deaths make it the worst ever disaster on Everest.
