FRANCE-NEPAL-MOUNTAIN-ACCIDENT-CEREMONY

People pay homage in front of the coffins of the French mountain guides Ludovic Challeat and Fabrice Priez, and the portrait of their colleague Remy Lecluse (still missing) during a memorial ceremony to pay tribute to the victims of the last week avalanche on Nepal's Manaslu mountain, on October 2, 2012, in Chamonix, that is considered the birthplace of European alpinism and the home of most of the French climbers killed. The four French -- two guides and two clients -- were among eight people killed after an avalanche swept through their camp on the side of the 8,156-metre (26,759-foot) Himalayan mountain, just hours before the alpinists were to make an attempt to reach the peak's summit.
