Seven die in Hi­malayas

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

At least seven climbers died when a vi­o­lent snow­storm de­stroyed their camp on a Hi­malayan peak in west­ern Nepal.

A five-mem­ber South Korean ex­pe­di­tion team and four Nepali guides were at the base camp of Mount Gurja when the storm struck yes­ter­day.

A res­cue he­li­copter at the scene con­firmed see­ing seven bod­ies in the ru­ins of the camp, but was un­able to stay due to bad weather con­di­tions.

Two other climbers are yet to be found.
