Response to April 2005 Accidents/Rescues/Searches


The climbing community was taken aback by early reports that two Russian Everest climbers had been injured by a Maoist car bomb in Nepal. Although the Russians were indeed injured they were identified later as just trekkers. They are being looked after by Asian Trekking Organization. The government has banned travel on major roads without an armed escort during the Maoist blockade.
