Six people have died attempting to climb the Mount Everest over a period of six days. Two of the climbers, Paresh Nath and Goutam Gosh, had been missing since May 21 but their bodies have since been discovered.

Since Edmund Hillary and his accompanying Sherpa first scaled Mount Everest in 1953, over four thousand people have attempted to conquer the world’s tallest peak. More than three hundred people have died in the process. These were the first casualties of Everest’s 2016 climbing season.

36 years-old Eric Arnold, a Netherlands-based triathlete died on May 19th of a suspected heart attack. Phurba Sherpa, aged 25 fell his to death attempting to fix a route near the summit also on May 19th.

Dr. Maria Strydom, 34, a finance lecturer at Australia’s Monash University, died a day later on May 22 of suspected altitude sickness. Dr. Strydom’s husband and climbing partner Robert Gropel suffered a high-altitude pulmonary oedema and needed to be airlifted to Kathmandu hospital. He was reportedly released on May 24 but refuses to leave Nepal without his wife’s body.

Subash Paul, 44, died at Base Camp II of suspected altitude sickness on May 23. Paresh Nath and Goutam Gosh were members of the same climbing team and went missing although their bodies were later found. Unexpected poor weather conditions are reported to have made the conditions on Mount Everest much more grueling and dangerous for climbers.

Lawyers representing Haitian cholera victims warned the United Nations (UN) on May 7, if they do not admit liability for the spread of cholera in 2010, they’ll be sued. Lawyers demand the UN apologize to and compensate the victims and improve sanitation efforts.

Lawyers claim the UN is breaking international law by failing to apologize or provide remuneration to the victims. They’re seeking a minimum of USD$100,000 each for families of the deceased and $50,000 for each survivor. So far, over 8,000 people have died and thousands more have been infected with the disease.

UN peacekeepers, whom arrived in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, are being blamed for the spread of the disease which started near the troop’s encampment. According to the lawsuit, waste from the UN camp was not properly sanitized, causing bacteria to enter the tributary of the Artibonite River, one of Haiti’s largest. Prior to the arrival of troops, Haiti had not encountered problems related to the disease since the 1800s. The Haitian Institute for Justice and Democracy has referenced independent studies that suggest the Nepalese UN peacekeeping battalion unknowingly brought the disease to Haiti. Danielle Lantagne, a UN expert on the disease, stated the outbreak was likely caused by the peacekeepers.

Scientists from Pacific Bio-sciences of California Inc. analyzed the bacteria in Haiti and concluded its genome is an almost identical match to samples recovered in South Asia, but different to those found in Latin America.

The UN continues to deny any responsibility for the cholera outbreak and claims it is immune from further legal proceedings. Nearly 8,000 people have vowed to join the lawsuit.

The Election Commission of Nepal has decided to put off its Constituent Assembly election in 2012 due to the opposition parties refused to cooperate over the electoral arrangements.

It’s expected the next Constituent Assembly election will be held in April-May 2013.

The Nepali Congress says that it’s “UCPN (M)’s ploy to remain in power” and that the caretaker Maoist-led government’s “unilateral decision was unexpected”. However, according to an AFP interview on its information and communication minister Raj Kishor Yadav, Maoist-led government “wanted to conduct elections in November 22” but the election commission insisted that “the lack of a workable constitution meant there were no legal provisions for holding a vote”. Date for the election would be announced after consultation with all political parties, says Yadav.

An aeroplane crash in the Asian country of Nepal has resulted in the death of all nineteen of the vehicle’s occupants. The aircraft was travelling around the region of Mount Everest, carrying sightseers.

The crash occurred shortly after contact with the aircraft was lost, which was around 0730 NPT today. Bimlesh Lal Karna, Tribhuvan International Airport rescue section leader, informed Agence France-Presse: “All 19 people have died. The Buddha Air-103 was returning from a mountain flight when it crashed into Kotdada Hill”.

On person onboard the plane, police said, survived the crash on a hill near Kathmandu, but died later in a hospital. Among the victims were ten Indian, two US, and one Japanese passenger; the other three passengers and the three crew were Nepali.

According to police, an investigation of the cause of the crash has been started. A black box recorder was found at the scene in the hours after the accident. When the crash occurred, weather conditions in the region were poor, with fog and heavy rain.

The plane had been on of the country’s ‘mountain flights’, which transport tourists over the Everest region, allowing them to observe various peaks from the airplane windows.

Mount Everest

Sherpa mountaineer Nawang Gombu, 79, the first person to reach the summit of Mount Everest twice, died Sunday morning at his home in Darjeeling, India, located at the base of the Himalayas, his family reported.

Gombu was born in Tibet but later moved with his family to a small village in Nepal near Mount Everest.

When he was about 21, Gombu reached the South Col as the youngest member of Sir Edmund Hilary‘s team in 1953. On that expedition, Hilary and Tenzing Norgay, Gombu’s uncle, were the first to successfully scale Mount Everest.

Cquote1.svg He was not only an outstanding climber, Gombu was a fine person who guided Indian mountaineering to a greater height. Cquote2.svg

—Mohan Singh Kohli, leader of the 1965 Indian Everest expedition

Gombu set another record as the first person to reach the mountain’s summit twice, first in 1963 with Jim Whittaker on an American expedition and again in 1965 with Captain Awarae Singh Cheema on an Indian expedition.

He scaled many other Himalayan peaks including Makalu, Nanda Devi and Cho Oyu, and is credited with discovering several new mountain routes.

Gombu was one of the “Tigers of the Snow”, Sherpa mountain climbers who brought recognition to their their ethnic community in the mountains of Tibet and Nepal.

He was important in the formation of the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI), along with other Sherpas. The creation of the Institute was supported by Nehru. Gombu served as Director of Field Training there after Norgay retired from the role, eventually retiring from HMI himself after more than forty years of work for the Institute.

“He was not only an outstanding climber, Gombu was a fine person who guided Indian mountaineering to a greater height,” said Mohan Singh Kohli, a retired Navy captain and leader of the 1965 Indian expedition. “Gombu’s death left a big void in the adventure field of the country.”

For his work, Gombu received many awards, including medals from Queen Elizabeth II and the National Geographic Society, and was invited to the White House by President Kennedy.

Mount Everest

Jordan Romero, a thirteen-year-old alpinist from Big Bear Lake, California, is the youngest person to have summited Mount Everest, according to reports circulated by the Associated Press quoting a spokesman based in the United States. The expedition included the boy’s father, stepmother, and three Sherpa guides.

Romero ascended 8,850 metres (29,035 feet) breaking the record for the youngest climber on Everest previously set by 16 year old Temba Tsheri from Nepal. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do before I die — I just happen to be doing it at this age. I happen to be going for a world record. But I just want to climb it,” Jordan told AFP reporters before embarking on the trek. On the same day, mountaineer Apa Sherpa, from Nepal, scaled Everest for the 20th time breaking a personal record.

It is anticipated that additional information will become available once the summit team returns to camp on the Tibet side of the mountain.

The Maoist opposition political group in Nepal has begun a nationwide strike in an effort to force the ruling government to step down.

The strike has entered its second day, after Nepal’s Prime Minister, Madhav Kumar Nepal refused the demands of the Maoists to resign last night. After his refusal, a strike was immediately called. There are thousands of protesters in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, and most businesses across the country have closed for the strike. Emergency vehicles are the only traffic allowed to move in the streets.

Protesters say they are peaceful, although police claim to have confiscated weapons and explosives. Although so far no violence has broken out, and the mood in the streets is described as festive, the government has deployed additional police in the capital, and security forces are on high alert.

The Maoists say that the ruling government is not supported by Nepal’s citizens, as it has been unable to draft a constitution for the country or made any effort to continue the peace process in the country. The Maoists, which have a majority in Nepal’s parliament, are advocating to lead a national government.

Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal commented: “We have been accused of playing a conspiratorial role in the creation of the constitution by the main opposition party, when they should be helping and participating in a creative way.”

The leader of the Maoist party, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Nepal’s former prime minister, said he hoped “[w]e’ll be able to come to an understanding because our movement is completely peaceful and in the democratic norms and with the huge participation of the masses of peoples … Our minimum demand is having a national unity government and a peace and constitution.”
