From Reuters

The first all-woman expedition to the North Pole has been abandoned after 12 days because of severe weather, and a Canadian member of the team is being treated for frostbite, it was reported today.

Norwegian radio said extreme cold and difficult ice conditions forced the expedition's four French and two Canadian members to abandon their 660-mile trek on skis to the Pole and they have been evacuated.
