Three South Korean mountain climbers are missing after an avalanche struck Tuesday while they were attempting to scale K2 of the Himalayas, POSCO said on Wednesday.
Six members of the expeditionary team from North Kyongsang Province are reported to have been hit by the avalanche Tuesday morning while they were sleeping at the second camp at a point around 6,600 meters above sea level on K2.
POSCO identified the missing as Lee Hwa-hyong, 36, Kim Jae-yong, 35, and Pae Kyong-kyu, 34.
The other three members of the team returned to the base camp after the incident.
