Avalanche kills 4 foreign tourists in Norway
Oslo: Police say an avalanche buried six Swiss
and French tourists in northern Norway today, killing four of them.
One person was dug out alive and taken to a hospital and
another was missing after the snow-slide near Tromsoe on
Norway's Arctic coast.
Of the six people struck by the avalanche, one was a
French citizen and five were Swiss nationals, Tromsoe police
spokesman Morten Pettersen said.
He said rescuers had detected signals from their avalanche
transceivers buried in the snow.
