Two Britons and a Mexican have become the first foreigners to climb Mount Everest from the Nepal side, climbing officials said on Thursday, after disasters in 2014 and 2015 killed dozens and forced mountaineers off the world's tallest peak. Briton Kenton Cool, 42, Robert Richard Lucas, 47, both from Britain and David Liano Gonzalez, 36, of Mexico, reached the 8,850 metre (29,035 feet) summit at 8.24 a.m.
