Nepali officials say that at least three climbers have died while returning from the summit of Mt Everest.

The three are reported to be a South Korean, a German and a Nepali-born Canadian woman.

Conditions were favorable on Friday and Saturday morning but a wind storm swept the mountain later on Saturday.

There are reports at the mountain's base camp that the death toll may rise further.
