First Pakistani team climbs K2 (in Pakistan) Friday, 8 August 2014 At 11:53:24 PM martym

Just saw this headline on the BBC website - not sure if it's appeared elsewhere:
First Pakistan team of climbers scale K2 summit
"The current expedition - called K2 60 Years Later - includes six Pakistanis: Hassan Jan, Ali Durani, Rahmat Ullah Baig, Ghulam Mehdi, Ali and Muhammad Sadiq. Three Italians are also part of the group.
Individual Pakistan climbers have reached the top before - but this is Pakistan's first successful team attempt."

I actually read the news after this less awesome story about the first ascent:
Amir Mehdi: Left out to freeze on K2 and forgotten - about the "porter" (with the skills of any Sherpa) who lived a life of poverty despite assisting the italian first ascentionists; spent the night at 8100m & lost all his toes to frostbite.

Both articles worth the read.
