French military recently conferred medals on Pakistan Army pilots who rescued a French mountaineer.

Pakistan Army Aviation pilots rescued two foreign mountain climbers from the Broad Peak, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Sunday.

In a statement, ISPR said the climbers, Donald Allen Bowie from the US and Lotta Henriikka Nakyva from Finland, were part of an international winter expedition attempting to summit Broad Peak but were "stranded en route due to sickness", reports Dawn news.

Last week, the French military conferred medals on the Pakistan Army Aviation pilots who rescued a French mountaineer from the Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest peak, in a daring late-night rescue mission in 2018.
