German mountaineer Luis Stitzinger's body has been found on Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest mountain, expedition organisers said on Wednesday. The 54-year-old had reached the summit of Kanchenjunga on May 25 without supplemental oxygen but then lost contact. A search team of five Nepali guides found Stitzinger's body just below the peak at about 8,400 metres.
