"I believe with all my heart heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think, we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today, with all the progress we have made in liberal thought, the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly towards these objectives must be learned by experience". - Frank Knox

             Two climbers dead, seven missing on K2

 

 

     Rome, Aug 2 (DPA) Two climbers from an international expedition have died on K2 mountain in the Himalayas, and seven members of the team have gone missing, Italian media reported Saturday.

 

 

     A Serbian and a Korean climber died as the 17-member rope team attempted to conquer K2, the second highest mountain in the world at 8,611 metres above sea level, the reports quoted rescue operation coordinator Agostino Da Polenza as saying.

 

 

     The team also included climbers from the Netherlands, Norway and Italy. There were no Italians among the missing, the reports said.

 

 

     Fallen ice was hampering the rescue effort, it said.

 

 

     Da Polenza had led last month's rescue efforts in saving two Italian climbers on Nanga Parbat.
