Hunt for missing Poles abandoned

Radio Polonia:

Mission to rescue Polish mountaineers in the Caucasus failed

A joint Polish-Russian mission of rescuers who climbed the mount of Ushba in the Caucasus to reach the place where two Polish mountaineers had been trapped in a crevice failed. A group of 4 Polish mountaineers got trapped in a crevice in the Caucasus Mountains a week ago, two managed to survive and call help. Four Russians and two Polish rescuers resumed their search yesterday but found that the crevice was inaccessible and returned to their base today in the morning. According to the rescue team, chances of finding the two Poles alive were null due to the fact that the crevice was covered by snow and ice.
