Some rather messy grammar and punctuation here detracts from the article. If the writing is this amateurish, maybe the research is too. No need for either of the commas in this sentence, and whom is definitely wrong here. It should be who.

From what I remember, isn't there some local legend or folklore that comes from the Mansi tribe, about 9 Mansi dying on the mountain Kholat Syakhyl (mountain of the dead) ?
The place they were heading for Mount Ortorten, means don't go there !
What I find curious is the level of radiation in the area.
[edit on 10-4-2009 by Family Size]
That was one of the initial theories thought about by the lead investigator, Lev Ivanov. I believe this was ruled out due to the fact that no Mansi were actually living in the area (i think). One of the sources i posted on page one explains this in greater depth
I don't think radiation poisoning would make damage that was not identified as such by a doctor, direct physical damage is not like the effects of poison (most radioactive materials are poisonous) or radiation (radiation "burns").

The internal bruising and damage could be from radiation poisoning which also might explain skin discoloration but that drastic of injuries is odd.
