Two Israeli Hikers Killed After Falling From Height in Georgia

The Jerusalem Post reports: The Foreign Ministry reported that two Israelis were killed in a climbing accident at the Ushba peak of the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia.

The first occurred on July 7, when two Israeli nationals were killed and another wounded in a car crash while traveling down route 70 in California.
