By Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - A huge earthquake in Nepal unleashed an avalanche on Mount Everest on Saturday, killing at least 10 people at the start of the main climbing season. The avalanche buried part of the base camp, raising fears for the safety of hundreds of climbers who were in the area, said Gyanendra Shrestha of the Tourism Ministry in Kathmandu.He said two tents at the camp had been filled with the injured. "The toll could go up, it may include foreigners as well as sherpas (guides)," he said.Ministry officials estimated that at least 1,000 climbers, including about 400 foreigners, had been at base camp or on Everest when the earthquake struck. April is one of the most popular times to scale Everest, before rain and clouds cloak the world's highest peak at the end of May.The 7.9 magnitude quake was the strongest to hit Nepal for 81 years and was known to have killed well over 700 people, mostly in the Kathmandu Valley, as well as sending tremors through northern India.

Children of Filipina drug convict and death row prisoner Mary Jane Veloso, Mark Darren, 6 (lower front C), Mark Daniel, 12 (C), along with other relatives arrive in Cilacap, to visit Nusakambangan maximum security prison island, on April 25, 2015Indonesia said Saturday it has officially notified eight foreign drug convicts that they will be executed, but a Frenchman was granted a temporary reprieve after Paris stepped up pressure on Jakarta. The eight -- from Australia, Brazil, Nigeria and the Philippines -- have been transported to the high-security prison island of Nusakambangan where they will face the firing squad along with an Indonesian prisoner, despite strident international criticism. "Today, just now, we just finished notifying every convict, nine people except for Serge," a spokesman for the attorney-general's office, Tony Spontana, told AFP, adding it would be at least three days until the sentences are carried out. Officials said earlier that Frenchman Serge Atlaoui, who was expected to be among the group being put to death, will not be included in the forthcoming batch as he still has an outstanding legal appeal.
