Body of Japanese climber found in northern Pakistan

The body of a Japanese climber, who disappeared in the mountains of northern Pakistan, was found this Saturday (15) by rescue teams. The search continues for a second man.

The climbers were reported missing last Wednesday (12), while climbing Pico Spantik, which is 7027 meters above sea level.

The search for the second climber continues with the help of a search team, including two Pakistan Army helicopters, manned by high-altitude climbers and experts.

Shigar Deputy Commissioner Wali Ulah told reporters that the team was working in challenging weather conditions and found the body 300 meters below a camp.

“The Japanese embassy in Pakistan and the Japanese consulate in Karachi have been informed of the developments, and Pakistani authorities are working closely with them to ensure a quick and safe conclusion to the search operation,” a statement from the DC office said.
