Parts of Austria, southern Germany sink deeper into snow

BERLIN (AP) – Heavy snow is ongoing in parts of Austria and southern Germany, with several places cut off and the bad weather expected to last until today. Austrian police said yesterday that a 16-year-old boy from Australia was killed in an avalanche in St Anton am Arlberg as he was skiing with his family on Wednesday. That brought to at least 15 the number of weather-related deaths reported in Europe over the last week. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
