Ashes to...

Plans to scatter some of Edmund Hilary’s ashes on Mount Everest have been cancelled because Buddhist priests there have warned it would bring bad luck – and possibly a flood of requests for/from others. Most of Hillary’s ashes were scattered in the sea off Auckland after his death, aged 88, in 2008; the remainder was/are in the care of a small Buddhist monastery.
