Tourists return to bushfire-ravaged NSW communities

  Tourists return to bushfire-ravaged NSW communities Tourists are starting to return to bushfire-ravaged towns on the New South Wales South Coast, and areas cut off by the fires are also bouncing back. Some business owners in regions cut off during the bushfire crisis reported sale losses of up to 70 per cent. Australians have been urged to buy from bushfire-ravaged communities to help them get back on their feet following the crisis.

REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar Eight Indian tourists including four children have died from suspected suffocation in a hotel in Nepal on Tuesday, police said, after trying to keep warm by using a gas heater during the night. 

The victims were staying in Daman, a hill resort south of Kathmandu which is known for its panoramic views of the Himalayas.

"They had lit a gas heater to keep the room warm and probably suffocated," police official Hobindra Bogati told Reuters. Seven other tourists in the group were unharmed.

Tourism is a major source of revenue for Nepal's economy, providing hundreds of thousands of jobs. Last year just over 1 million tourists visited the country, of which the biggest contingent - around a tenth - came from India.
