K2 confusion
See explorsweb posting RE: K2 accident http://www.mounteverest.net/news.php?id=17472

It appears that a Sweedish climber Fredrik Strang frustrated rescue efforts by giving misleading information regarding the climbers stranded above the bottleneck. The accident happened early Saturday morning after the successfull Friday night summit. Frantic calls went out to other mountaineers on the mountain to go up with rope and assist the group of stranded climbers.
From ExplorersWeb:
"Reports show that some climbers had been holding below in a camp around 8000 meters in fear of worsening weather. What exactly took place or didn't take place this black Saturday is not yet clear. What is clear however is that these climbers were back in BC already by early Sunday. Among frantic rescue attempts for the moving dots high up on the wall, some of these men managed to find the time and stamina to grab their satellite phones and call media by Sunday lunch, declaring all the unlocated people dead. "
