Kathmandu, May 5 (AP): Flash floods from a mountain river swept away dozens of people along with their cattle and houses in western Nepal, officials said.
Police official Shailesh Thapa said 13 bodies has been recovered from the Seti river south of Mount Annapurna in Kaski district. Police were searching for dozens of missing people.
The flooding reached the tourist resort town of Pokhara, about 200km west of Kathmandu. Thapa said the floods were apparently triggered by an avalanche on Annapurna. Thousands of trekkers visit the Annapurna region each year.
