8:06 pm
for coming in what's tell us what's happening at the top of the world there so we have a photo of exactly what the situation was taken by nepalese climber in a mere bald porsche mog are we have a photo of his twitter feed which is where this was originally posted and what this photo shows is what's called the death zone on everest is right below the summit this is a huge line of i think it was around $200.00 people that had to stand in line for hours waiting to summit the mountain and when you're standing at those altitudes you're risking frostbite altitude sickness and those are 2 of the biggest killers on everest this is from a blog called everest today which is also a popular climbing blog a tour organizer on everest told a.f.p. of that there was one person who died because he was stuck in this traffic for 12 hours now here's the thing about everest you can't just show up and climate you have to get a permit in order to do so the nepalese government says they've issued around $400.00 permits this year and everest is actually on track to break its own record
8:07 pm
of how many people have a climb to the mountain this year but the other thing is that it's actually a very short season when it's relatively safe to be able to climb everest that's just april and may when people traditionally go but a spate of bad weather has kept people off the mountain and what happened recently was suddenly there was a bit of good weather that broke through and everyone just rushed for the summit resulting in this and now higher than average death rate it's a really incredible picture and know what you expect when you think about people climbing. what's of one of the possible solutions welcome people to to a combat this so there's been a there's a strong campaign starting now for the government to start limiting the number of permits that it can. is out per year the thing is nepal is a relatively poor country a quarter of its population lives below the poverty line and these permits cost $10000.00 euros each around there so this is a big source of cash for them but of course we're risking not only people dying of
8:08 pm
higher than average rates as we're seeing but also there's huge environmental damage that's happening because of all these people that are rushing up the mountain so a lot more pressure on the nepalese government to act in some way to solve this absolutely be interesting to see what happens there thanks so much for coming in. the united nations maritime court says that russia must immediately free ukrainian soldiers sailors it's been holding for months and release their vessels last november russia fired on and seized 3 ukrainian ships off the crimean peninsula that promoted ukraine to appeal to the un's international tribunals for the war to see russia didn't immediately say how it would respond to today's ruling. the confrontation has marked a major escalation of tensions between the 2 countries in the conflict over russia's 24 tane annexation of crimea. a russian coast guard boat last november as it prepares to ram a ukrainian naval vessel captain can be heard shouting at his crew to stay the
