By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) – The remains of two young Japanese climbers missing on the Matterhorn mountain since a 1970 snow storm in the Swiss Alps have been identified through DNA testing of their relatives, police said on Thursday. “They had spent the night before in a hut because they wanted to ascend the north face of the Matterhorn. “The snow storm lasted a few days which prevented the rescue teams from searching.” Swiss forensic scientists established two DNA profiles from the bones found, police said.
