Hunt for 8 called off

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

SWISS po­lice have in­def­i­nitely sus­pended their search for eight peo­ple who went miss­ing in the first of two land­slides that sent rocks, mud and de­bris into a Swiss Alpine vil­lage.

“All hints in­di­cate that the miss­ing per­sons were in the area of the first land­slide on Wed­nes­day,” po­lice spokes­woman San­dra Scianguetta said.

More than 100 res­cue work­ers have been look­ing for the four Ger­mans, two Swiss and two Aus­tri­ans since the land­slides dev­as­tated the vil­lage of Bondo near the Ital­ian bor­der.

The hik­ers had set off sep­a­rately or in pairs.
