Glacier break in the Dolomites: seven dead, 13 missing

A piece of a glacier breaks off in the Dolomites, taking several mountaineers with it on the way down to the valley. At least seven people are killed. The accident is likely to be related to the drought and heat in the country.

A fatal accident occurs on the Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites.
