A Nepalese Buddhist monk prepares to light the funeral pyre for Italian mountaineer Alberto Mariano, who died on an avalanche on Mount Manaslu, during a ceremony in Kathmandu on September 26, 2012. Nepalese rescuers said that they would call off a search for three climbers missing since a deadly avalanche at the weekend, as police admitted they initially miscalculated the death toll. Eight mountaineers have died while two French and a Canadian remain unaccounted for after their group was hit by a wall of snow near the Himalayan peak of the 8,156-metre (26,759-foot) Manaslu in the early hours of Sunday.
