Truce reached among fighting climbers on Everest

KATMANDU, Nepal — A truce has been reached between three foreign climbers and Nepalese Sherpa guides involved in a fistfight on Mount Everest, officials said Wednesday. Two of the foreigners, however, returned to Nepal’s capital and were undecided if they would quit their climb.

Tilak Pandey of the Mountaineering Department said a truce was reached at base camp between the foreigners — an Italian, a Briton, and a Swiss — and the Sherpas on Tuesday.
