Four skiers die in Norway avalanche
(04-16 17:51)

Norwegian police say rescuers have found the bodies of four skiers who were killed by an avalanche in central Norway.
The four men were reported missing late Monday after skiing off-piste in the Sunndalsfjella mountains.
Local police spokesman Alf Stormo says search and rescue efforts were hampered by bad weather but the skiers were found early Wednesday through their tracker beacons.
Stormo says the victims, all Norwegians, were experienced skiers in their 20s and 30s. --AP
