The bodies of five South Korean mountaineers who lost their lives climbing the Himalayas were returned to their home country on Wednesday.

The team of nine, including four Nepalese, led by climber Kim Chang-ho, died when the Himalayan peak they were scaling was hit by a storm last week.

Kim had set the record in 2013 for being the fastest to reach the summits of the world's 14 highest mountains without using supplemental oxygen.
