NPR's Guy Raz reports from Kaprun, Austria, that recovery teams began removing bodies today from the wreckage of a ski-tram that caught fire in a mountain tunnel Saturday. The death toll now stands at 159 -- all skiers and snowboarders. Recovery efforts are slow-going; falling rock and toxic fumes have forced emergency crews to stop work at times. Investigators are searching for clues as to the cause of the fire.
