BEIJING — About 200 American and European tourists stranded for a week aboard buses by heavy snowfall in remote southwest Tibet have emerged safely but rescuers still are trying to reach other trapped people, officials said today.

No casualties have been reported among the foreigners in the mountainous Himalayan region, but 13 Tibetans have died since the three days of unusually heavy snows and rain fell beginning Oct. 19, Chinese officials said. In Washington, the State Department said six to 10 tourists remained aboard the buses.
