No pressure in climbers' rescue

SHANGHAI police denied over the weekend that any "powerful relatives" had influenced a decision to send rescuers to find city students lost in Anhui Province's Yellow Mountain this month. While the climbers were led to safety, a young policeman fell to his death.

The police said on their official website that reports that the "uncle-in-law" of one of the 18 climbers persuaded officers to launch the rescue effort were "unfounded." Officers said they "had never received any call from any alleged 'powerful' person related to the rescues."
