Drone search resumes for missing hikers on Italian glacier after avalanche | BreakingNews latest
At least seven people died in the tragedy on Sunday.
Rescuers using drones have resumed the search for an estimated 13 hikers who are unaccounted for following an avalanche in northern Italy.
At least seven people died in the tragedy which is being blamed in large part on rising temperatures that are melting glaciers.
After rain hampered the search on Monday, sunnier weather allowed helicopters to bring more rescue teams up to the site on the Marmolada glacier, east of Bolzano in the Dolomites mountain range.
A huge chunk of the glacier broke off on Sunday, sparking an avalanche that sent torrents of ice, rock and debris down the mountainside onto unsuspecting hikers below.
