Illustration file picture shows a man typing on a computer keyboard in WarsawRussian hackers who penetrated sensitive parts of the White House computer system last year read President Barack Obama's unclassified emails, the New York Times reported on Saturday, quoting U.S. officials. "There is no evidence that the president's email account itself was hacked, White House officials said. Still, the fact that some of Mr. Obama's communications were among those retrieved by hackers has been one of the most closely held findings of the inquiry," the paper said. The White House confirmed the breach earlier this month, saying it took place last year and that it did not affect classified information.

By Yasmeen Abutaleb NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. companies and travel groups frantically tried to keep in touch with climbers stuck on Mount Everest on Saturday after a 7.9-magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal and killed nearly 1,400 people. The quake also triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, where Nepal’s Tourism Industry estimated at least 1,000 climbers, including about 400 foreigners, had been on the mountain or at a base camp when the quake hit.  An Indian Army mountaineering team found 18 bodies on the mountain. Dan Fredinburg, a Google executive who was climbing with the British mountaineering company Jagged Globe, was among those killed on the mountain, Google said, adding he died of a head injury. The company said it was working to "get them home quickly." U.S.-based climbing groups that lead Everest expeditions, which often last up to 70 days or more, said they had been in touch with mountaineers via satellite phone and kept concerned family members and friends updated through social media and blogs on their websites.
