TBILISI (Sputnik) — Four mountain climbers were found dead on the peak of Ushba in Georgia, the country's Emergency Management Agency said on Saturday.
"Rescuers found four bodies on the peak of Ushba at daybreak. Tourists were reported to be missing a day ago, afterward we started search and rescue operation," the agency's statement read.
According to preliminary data, two climbers were Russian nationals, while the other two were from Israel, the agency added.
Not the highest peak of the Caucasus Mountains, Ushba is yet a notoriously dangerous ascent.
