Skiers and climbers die in Swiss Alps due to bad weather

YEREVAN, MAY 1, ARMENPRESS. Four skiers and two climbers have died in separate incidents in the Swiss Alps after bad weather swept through the Valais region on April 30, BBC reports.

The skiers from France, Italy and Germany were among a party of 14 who failed to reach a mountain cabin more than 3,000m (9,850ft) above sea level.
