Avalanche kills four skiers in French Alps as police question guide over risk taken

Avalanche kills four skiers in French Alps as police question guide over risk takenFour skiers were killed and another injured in an avalanche in the French Alps on Friday and their guide was held for questioning, authorities said. The group of six people was on a ski touring expedition in an off-trail area near Entraunes, close to the Italian border in the southern Alps. The identities of the skiers were not immediately released. Prosecutor Jean-Michel Pretre of Nice said in remarks shown on French television that they were "seniors," all with experience in backcountry skiing. He said the guide knew the area well. A judicial inquiry was opened into manslaughter and involuntary injury, and the guide was taken in for questioning, the prosecutor said. The cause of the avalanche was unknown. French authorities had warned against a high risk of avalanches in the Alps following heavy snowfall in recent days, and the prosecutor called that "a decisive element." "A risk was taken. Was it acceptable, reasonable, or not?" said Pretre. "This is the subject of the investigation." The Mountain Guides Union said the group was in a non-steep area of the Mercantour national park. In a statement, the union said the guide was also buried by the avalanche but managed to get out. An avalanche farther north in the French Alps on Friday killed a 25-year-old woman at La Grave, according to local media reports. More than a dozen people have died in avalanches in the French Alps this ski season, in addition to those killed in other parts of the mountain range.

Once again, Kenya delays election in some areas over risk of violence

Once again, Kenya delays election in some areas over risk of violenceBy Ed Cropley and George Obulutsa NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenyan authorities said on Friday they would indefinitely delay further attempts to hold a repeat presidential election in some areas due to the risk of violence, as the opposition rejected the re-run as “a sham” and said the polls should be canceled. The east African nation had been due to hold elections on Saturday in four western counties, after residents blocked roads and clashed with police on during an attempt to hold the polls there on Thursday. Opposition leader Raila Odinga pulled out of the contest earlier this month, saying the contest against President Uhuru Kenyatta was not going to be fair.
