Avalanche in French Alps kills two skiers

PARIS (Reuters) - An avalanche swept away two skiers, a man and his 11-year old daughter, who took a closed path in the French Alps on Sunday.

The avalanche happened in Val d’Isere area at an altitude of 3,000 metres, Cecile Ferrando, a spokeswoman for the tourist centre at the ski station, told BFMTV.

The two skiers were part of a larger group, she added.
