Seven die in Himalayas
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.
