At least seven people were killed Sunday when a glacier ruptured and slid down the mountainside in the Italian Alps, rescue services said.
Eight people were injured during the accident on the Marmolada peak of the eastern Dolomites, according to Italian state television RAI. Local media described how masses of ice, snow and debris slid down the mountain before hitting the hikers.
It couldn’t immediately be determined how many hikers were in the area or whether any were missing, said Walter Milan, a spokesperson for the national Alpine rescue corps who provided the death and injury toll.DW News YouTube Channel
