Nangpa La: Survivors Speak Out

MountEverest.net has posted yet another update on the Nangpa La incident. This time, we hear from some of the survivors themselves, a number of whom have made it safely into India, where they feel they can tell their story. They pretty much confirm what we’ve been hearing about this story for several weeks now. The Chinese military fired about them without warning, claiming the bullets were flying so close they could hear them whizzing past their ears.

Also, yesterday the Chinese confirmed that a second person was killed during the incident, while rumors suggest that it may be higher than that. There are also still a number of refugees unaccounted for, including a group of children, some of whom are believed to be in Chinese custody.
