Islamabad - Representatives of Pakistan's government and tour operators met Monday to discuss the climbers missing on K2, the world's second-highest mountain.
The meeting, which Pakistan's state secretary for sports and tourism attended, was to improve coordination for rescue efforts.
Mohammed Ilyas, spokesman for the Askari Aviation air rescue service, said two Dutch climbers with frostbite were rescued by helicopter from the mountain. Search efforts for several missing climbers continued.
Eight expeditions were affected Friday when a chunk of ice fell from the mountain, taking a large number of fixed ropes with it and leaving as many as 11 climbers dead.
At the time, 20 to 25 climbers were heading toward the 8,611-metre summit or descending after reaching the top. (dpa)
