Original Message Seven people, including climbers from South Korea, were killed, and two more were considered missing on Gurja Himal mountain in Nepal after a fierce storm swept their base camp, Nepalese police told The Associated Press on Saturday.

"The camp was completely destroyed," Myagdi district official Liladhar Adhikari was heard saying, according to the BBC. "[A recovery team] could see the bodies of the climbers scattered near the camp."

The climbers were attempting to scale the 23,590-foot peak during the autumn climbing season.

The BBC reported that according to the Himalayan Database no one has stood on Gurja's summit since 1996.
