Israel’s sole fatality from Nepal quake to be laid to rest Wednesday

Israel’s sole fatality from the Nepal earthquake, Or Asraf, 22, will be buried in his home community of Lehavim in the Negav on Wednesday afternoon.

Details of the funeral were posted on a Facebook page dedicated to the memory of the young man who was killed on April 25 by an avalanche in the Langtang area where he was hiking when a massive earthquake struck Nepal.

An Israeli rescue team found his body on Sunday. Or’s father Patrick and former members of his elite Egoz reconnaissance team had flown to Nepal last week to join the search.
