Nepal to deploy security on Everest after brawls

Nepal has decided to deploy a team of security officials at Everest base camp, in a bid to avert brawls between climbers, officials say.

Last April a fight erupted between European mountaineers and a group of Sherpas at 7,470m (24,508ft).

Although that dispute was eventually resolved, officials say Everest's slopes are becoming more crowded.

An office staffed by army and police will open in April at Everest base camp as the climbing season gets under way.
