French climbers found dead on Mont Blanc


The bodies of two climbers have been found on Mont Blanc in the French Alps.

Charlotte Demetz, 44, and her guide Olivier Sourzac, 47, were trapped by heavy snow and fog on Walkers Peak one week ago.

Attempts to rescue them had been scuppered by bad weather.

Stranded in temperatures plunging as low as minus 25 degrees centigrade (minus 13 Fahrenheit), the pair maintained telephone contact with rescuers until Friday when their mobile battery ran flat.
