Bodies of Seven Missing Climbers Recovered From the Himalayas
Seven bodies from a group of eight missing climbers have been recovered in the Himalayas, officials have said. The mountaineers, believed to include four Brits, two Americans, one Australian and an Indian liaison officer, vanished in the Nanda Devi region on May 26 following an avalanche.
Rescue teams will continue to search the area for the body of the last climber. Led by British mountain guide Martin Moran, the team was attempting to reach the top of an unclimbed peak in a remote area. Officials previously said that all eight of the missing climbers are presumed dead, while four others who were part of the group were rescued. Earlier this month, a mission was launched to recover five bodies spotted during the search for the missing group of eight.
