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.
