An avalanche has killed a woman and a girl who were skiing on a glacier in the Italian Alps.
Alpine rescue corps spokesman Walter Milan said three helicopters, including one from nearby Austria, were involved in a search for any other possible victims of Saturday's avalanche in the Senales valley.
There were no reports of missing skiers.
The Italian news agency ANSA said the avalanche injured two others, including a boy.
Milan said the dead are believed to be Germans, although identification procedures had not yet been completed.
Milan said the risk of avalanches in the area has been high lately.
Another avalanche injured a man in a valley in Bolzano province. Milan said he was rescued by fellow skiers.
