  • 5 Korean Climbers Reported Dead On Nepalese Peak
At least eight members of a Korean climbing team, including five Koreans, have been killed in Mount Gurja in Nepal after a strong snowstorm hit their mountain base camp.

AFP quoted a Nepalese police official as saying the storm struck the base camp Friday night on Gurja Himal, the peak of a Himalayan mountain.

A ninth climber was also reported missing.

The Associated Press had earlier reported that bad weather prevented rescue helicopters from landing early Saturday morning.

The report says a police team was heading to the base camp but would arrive no sooner than Sunday given the distance.■
