    TBILISI, August 4 (RIA Novosti, Marina Kvaratskhelia) - A Canadian mountaineer has been struck and killed by falling ice in the Caucasus in the northern Georgian region of Svaneti, a local police chief said Thursday.

    Peter Everet was killed on August 1 as he and his companion, Michel Dorce, were trying to ascend Mount Shkhara. It took Dorce two days to get to the nearest police station to report the fatality.

    A team of rescuers is now being formed to recover the climber's body from the mountains.
