Grenoble: A hiker on Sunday found the bodies of six mountaineers in the French Alps who appeared to have died in an avalanche of snow and stones, officials said.

The bodies found on Neige Cordier summit at 2,700 metres (8,850 feet) were taken by helicopter to the nearby village of Villar d`Arene, village mayor Xavier Cret said.
