Deadly storm sweeps climbers from cliff face
Nine members of a South Korean climbing expedition died when a snowstorm swept them off a cliff on Nepal’s Mount Gurja, one of the deadliest mountaineering accidents to hit the Himalayan nation in years. The bodies of eight climbers– four South Koreans and four Nepalese guides – were seen near the wreckage of their camp by a rescue team yesterday morning, but strong winds hampered the search. A fifth South Korean climber was reported missing, but officials later confirmed he was at the camp when the deadly storm hit on Friday and also died.
