After the glacier rupture in the Italian Alps, the death toll has risen to eleven. Eleven people died in the accident almost a week ago and they were all identified, police officer Giampietro Lago said on Saturday to journalists. There is currently “no evidence” that other people have been buried on the Marmolada in the Dolomites.

The search continued nonetheless. As on Saturday, the search operation with drones will continue on Sunday, said the President of the Province of Trento, Maurizio Fugatti.

After record temperatures, part of the Marmolada glacier broke off in the Dolomites last Sunday, causing an avalanche of snow, ice and rock to fall, taking mountain hikers with it. Eight people were injured, including two Germans.

Some relatives of victims have accused the Italian authorities of being negligent in not sealing off the glacier area. They referred to statements by hikers and mountain guides who had warned of the dangers of the glacier in view of the high temperatures in the past few weeks. The public prosecutor’s office in Trento has initiated investigations into the cause of the accident.
