At least six people have died, nine are injured and 16 are missing in Italy after a glacier in the Alps collapsed. Among the missing are Romanian citizens.

The huge block of ice broke due to the high temperatures of the last period. Yesterday, in the area where the tragedy occurred, temperatures rose to 10 degrees Celsius.

The huge block of ice broke off on Sunday from the Marmolada glacier in the Alps in northern Italy, causing an avalanche. The provisional toll is 6 dead, 9 injured and about 20 missing after the avalanche caused on Sunday by the Marmolada glacier in the Italian Alps, Gianpaolo Bottacin, regional adviser for civil protection in Veneto, said.
