Aragón government calls for information about Spanish tourists still missing in Nepal

SPAIN'S foreign ministry has been asked for information from the regional government of Aragón about the five Spanish tourists missing in Nepal following the devastating earthquake on April 25.

All five were out hiking, separately, in the Langtang Valley national park, a hugely-popular tourist attraction when the massive quake struck.

They have never been found, although they are assumed to be dead.

Family members of one of the missing tourists, Miguel Ángel Pizarro, filed a petition to the government of Aragón, where he lived.

In turn, Aragonese president Vicente Guillén has contacted the Spanish foreign office, led by minister José Manuel García-Margallo, to find out what – if anything – is happening to try to find the Spanish holidaymakers who remain missing.

Guillén has also written to the Spanish embassy in Delhi, India, the nearest diplomatic centre to Nepal, which does not have one.

The search was suspended several weeks after the quake once all surviving Spaniards had been repatriated and the bodies of those who perished and were found returned to Spain.

As yet, the regional government has not had a response from the foreign office, but this may take some time as the current national cabinet is only holding its posts temporarily until negotiations between parties are concluded and a new president is sworn in.
