Kanazei, Italy — On Tuesday, rescue teams resumed searching for 13 missing climbers after a portion of the glacier rose in the Italian Alps on Sunday, killing at least seven people.
More than 36 hours after the avalanche, the hope of finding a survivor diminished. Three from the Czech Republic were among the unexplained people.
The avalanche on Sunday occurred in Marmolada. Marmolada is more than 3,300 meters (10,830 feet), the highest peak of the Dolomites in the eastern Italian Alps, which straddles the region of Trent and Veneto.
Peaks are still volatile, with rescuers using drones and helicopters to search for victims and cell phone signals to find victims.
According to Italian media, the murder was confirmed by Davide Miotti, a 51-year-old local Alpine guide who ran a sports shop in the area.
