France avalanche: Four killed at Tignes ski resort


Reports state that at least four people have died in an avalanche at the ski resort of Tignes in south-eastern France.

Police say a group of nine was buried after the wall of snow swept through an off-piste area.

The other five skiers have been found and were being “extracted”, according to a rescuer speaking to the Associated Press news agency.

But it was unclear if there were any other survivors.
