Bodies of seven foreign climbers retrieved from Indian mountain

AFP, New Delhi

The bodies of seven climbers killed on India's second-highest mountain were retrieved Sunday, capping a nearly month-long search by mountaineering experts in treacherous Himalayan terrain. The eight-person group that went missing in late May included four Britons, two Americans, one Indian and one Australian.

They had set out to summit a previously "unclimbed peak" in India's northern state of Uttarakhand. A group of mountaineers from the paramilitary Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) found the seven bodies near an unnamed peak on Nanda Devi East.

The search for the last remaining body would continue on Monday, ITBP spokesman Vivek Kumar Pandey told AFP.

Those retrieved have been "taken to a nearby site", Pandey said, adding: "We

have also found some mountaineering equipment and gear.” The bodies have not yet been identified.

The eight climbers were part of a 12-strong expedition, but four Britons were rescued after breaking away.

The main group, which was led by experienced British mountaineer Martin Moran, had permission only to climb the eastern peak of Nanda Devi.
