The Nepal Army has rescued 117 people from three remote mountain villages north of the capital, Kathmandu, including two U.S. citizens who had been searching for a missing relative, a military official said Tuesday.

The 115 Nepalese and two Americans were evacuated on Monday from Syanjen, Kenjing and Langtang Village, where hundreds of people were killed in a huge landslide and avalanche triggered by last month’s earthquake.
