A team of 20 Sherpa mountaineers plans to remove bodies of climbers who died in Mount Everest's "death zone," a treacherous stretch that has claimed some 300 lives since 1953, the team leader said Monday. The team also aims to remove tons of garbage left behind on the slopes under a Nepalese government program to clean up the popular tourist destination.
