Several Russian climbers were found dead in an avalanche on one of the highest peaks in the Caucasus Mountains on Friday. The group of four set out on January 2 to begin their ascent of Georgia's Mount Kazbek, climbing over 16,000 feet. A child who was part of the group survived, and is being treated for frostbite. Bad weather initially hindered recovery of the bodies, which have since been brought to the Georgian capital, Tbilisi.
