Sherpas who work as guides on Mount Everest have said they will not work again this climbing season to honour 16 colleagues killed in an avalanche last week.
The decision may scupper the plans of many foreign mountaineers who rely on the sherpas to help them carry and maintain kit.
"We had a long meeting this afternoon and we decided to stop our climbing this year to honour our fallen brothers. All sherpas are united in this," local sherpa Tulsi Gurung told the AFP news agency.
