Multiple Deaths in Swiss Alps Tragedy
The day after five German mountain climbers fell 100 metres to their deaths in the Swiss Alps, police say they still do not know what caused the accident.
The climbers - who included an adolescent - were not tied together with a cord which is one reason why a group of climbers may have fallen together.
Swiss police have been speculating as to the causes but say it is still under investigation.
[Jean-Marie Bornet,Valais Police Spokesman]:
"Possibly it's an avalanche. Is it a corniche? Is it falling rocks? We're trying to check this. The fact is that five people have died."
The alarm was raised after one of the climbers survived and alerted the authorities.
