Question of the Day
OSLO — Five people were killed and one person was dug out alive after Swiss and French skiers were buried by an avalanche Monday on Norway’s Arctic fringe.
Rescuers located the victims through beacons from their radio transceivers, but only the first person they found survived, a Swiss man who was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
A 3,000-foot wall of snow came crashing down on the skiers on Sorbmegaisa mountain, 40 miles east of the northern city of Tromso, police spokesman Morten Pettersen said.
The last victim was found buried under 20 feet of snow.
Four Swiss and one French skier died in the avalanche, which started at a height of 3,600 feet and was 2,000 feet long.
Assassination mars presidential election
BISSAU — A presidential election that was supposed to stabilize this coup-prone West African nation was marred by a military assassination just hours after polls closed Sunday.
Joao Biague, director general of the judicial police, confirmed the death of Samba Diallo, the former head of military intelligence.
Mr. Biague told the private radio station Pindjiguiti FM late Sunday that the police were investigating Mr. Diallo’s death and will bring those responsible to justice.
Few details were available Monday.
It was unclear if the assassination is linked to Sunday’s presidential election, an emergency ballot that was called after the Jan. 9 death of the country’s former leader, Malam Bacai Sanha, a 64-year-old diabetic who died in France after multiple hospitalizations abroad.
