Nepal Tightens Security on Mount Everest Following Brawl
Nepal announced Friday it would deploy a team of security officials at Everest base camp in a big to improve security for climbers, according to Time.
The base camp office would be staffed with a team of government officials, including the army and police personnel. The move comes after Nepal officials vowed to review security after a brawl broke out between three European climbers and a group of sherpas who were fixing their ropes last April. The new office will also discourage unnecessary competition between climbers and enforce climbing rules.
