Avalanche in French Alps kills at least four
PARIS (Reuters) - An avalanche in the French Alps killed four people on Friday and injured one, while another person was missing, police said, adding that a mountain rescue operation was underway.
The avalanche hit an area outside the ski slopes in the Entraunes area, French police said in a statement on Twitter.
Last month an avalanche swept away two skiers, a man and his 11-year-old daughter, in the alpine resort of Val d'Isere, while four others died in separate incidents in the Pyrenees.
