3 Iranian mountaineers missing in Pakistan

The head of a mountaineering club says rescuers have called off their search for three Iranian mountain climbers who went missing in northern Pakistan.

 

Manzoor Hussain, president of Pakistan's Alpine Club, said Sunday his outfit was coordinating the expedition, and that the three Iranians successfully ascended the 8,051-meter (26,414-foot) summit of Broad Peak. He says the men sent a call for help last Tuesday while descending the peak, saying they were exhausted and had run out of food. (AP)
