Civil.de reports two Georgian climbers from a Georgian-Dutch expedition perished on the 4,710-meter Ushba mountain in GeorgiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Caucasus Mountains.
Georgia had called in Elbrus Rescue Units from Russia to assist after attempts to rescue them while they were alive were thwarted by poor weather.
The victims: Zaliko Kikodze and Merab Khabazi.
They were trying to reach UshbaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s peak through one of the most difficult of the fifty available routes.
