Avalan­che acci­dent at Fri­dt­jov­breen: two per­sons dead

Two peop­le, both of Ger­man natio­na­li­ty, were kil­led during an avalan­che acci­dent at Fri­dt­jov­breen, a gla­cier south of Bar­ents­burg. Both were tra­vel­ling as part of a gui­ded group of the Arc­tic Tra­vel Com­pa­ny in Bar­ents­burg. When Nor­we­gi­an res­cue for­ces arri­ved on the sce­ne, they could only decla­re both per­sons dead.


The Nor­we­gi­an aut­ho­ri­ties are informing the rela­ti­ves of the vic­tims and will inves­ti­ga­te the acci­dent. The com­mu­ni­ty of Lon­gye­ar­by­en has estab­lis­hed a cri­sis team to help all peop­le in Bar­ents­burg and Lon­gye­ar­by­en who might be in need.
