Search team finds body of missing Israeli trekker Or Asraf in Nepal

A search team in Nepal discovered Sunday the body of 22-year-old Israeli trekker Or Asraf who had been missing since last Saturday when a 7.9 magnitude earthquake devastated the Himalayan country.

Asraf was the only Israeli to lose his life in the quake which has killed more than 7,000 people. His family confirmed on Sunday that they had been officially notified of his death.

The discovery of Asraf’s body came after travel documents belonging to him were found earlier Sunday near where he had last been seen in the Langtang area of Nepal just one hour before the earthquake struck.
