Austrian climber found dead on Nepal peak

An Austrian climber has been found dead in the Himalayas after attempting a solo ascent of a peak in Nepal's Everest region, officials said yesterday, the first death since new laws were introduced banning lone climbs.

The 41-year-old climber is believed to have died in late December after falling from a ridge on his way to the 6,119 metre (20,075 feet) summit of Mount Lobuche's eastern peak, which neighbours Mount Everest.
