NALCHIK, March 16 (Itar-Tass) - Rescuers found two backpacks at a height of 4,800 m above sea level on an Elbrus slope on Saturday when they were searching for two missing foreign tourists.
The tourists, Pawel Gostinski from Poland and Ali-Atabi Sirelli from Iran, disappeared on Friday.
The rescuers suppose the backpacks belong to the missing tourists, the head of the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry's department in Kabardino-Balkaria, Murat Apazhikhov, told Itar-Tass.

The information about the disappearance of two foreign tourists was received by the Elbrus search and rescue team on Friday from the Polish Embassy.
