Four German hikers have been killed by an avalanche in the Swiss Alps, police in the southern canton of Valais said on Sunday.
The accident took place on Friday in the village of Fieschertal, but bad weather prevented rescue services from finding the victim's bodies before Saturday, police said.
 
All hikers were equipped with search beacons, and an investigation into their deaths has been opened, they added.
