British climber dies in Alps snowstorm

______________________________



17 Aug 08 - A British pensioner and the Dutch guide he was hiking with have frozen to death in the Italian Alps after being caught in a violent snowstorm.

The bodies of the two men were found yesterday by a guide, partially covered by snow, at 4,000m on Monte Rosa in the Valle D'Aosta region where high wind had pushed temperatures down below minus 10C overnight.
