To break up brawls from hikers on the slopes of Mt. Everest, security forces are being deployed by Nepal.  Last year at 24,508 ft (7,470 m) a fight broke out between sherpas and a group of  European mountaineers.  And the trend is that this mountain will continue to become more crowded as more and more are looking to add to the elite group of people who have scaled this summit (over 3,000).
