Rescue operation over after last climber found

Rescue operation over after last climber found

The last person from a group of climbers involved in a tragic accident while exploring mountains in the Southern Russian republic of Khakassia has returned safely to a local campsite.

Rescuers had earlier recovered the bodies of four other mountaineers.

A rescue operation was launched after two climbers reported the accident on Tuesday.

The group of seven came from the Siberian Krasnoyarsk region and failed to inform local emergency services of their route, which complicated the rescue operation.
