Aides to Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) say her husband has died on a mountain climbing expedition in the Himalayas.

Congressional aide Barry Nolan said that Clifton Maloney, 71, was resting in a high-altitude camp after a successful ascent to the summit of the world's sixth-highest mountain when he died.

Arrangements are still being made to recover the body from the slopes of Cho Oyu, a 26,906-foot peak straddling Nepal and Tibet.
