Bodies of 7 climbers recovered in Himalayas

The bodies of seven of a group of eight missing climbers have been recovered in the Indian Himalayas, officials have said.

The group of climbers, believed to be comprised of four Britons, two Americans, one Australian and an Indian liaison officer, vanished in the Nanda Devi region on 26 May following an avalanche.

Rescue teams will continue to search the area for the body of the eighth mountaineer, Associated Press reported on Sunday.

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 were 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.
