Climbers found dead in Valais after search

Two Germans climbers who have been missing in Valais since Monday have been found dead.

Cantonal police say they were trying to climb the Bietschhorn and had left the Baltschiederklause on Saturday.

The Air Zermatt rescue service carried out a search for the pair, a 29-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman who lived in the region, but only found their bodies on Wednesday morning.
