An avalanche has killed two French and two German snowboarders in the Caucasus mountains of northern Georgia, police in the former Soviet republic said on Saturday.
The four, whose names have not been made public, died on Thursday night in the Svaneti region, Interior Ministry spokeswoman Nino Giorgobiani told AFP.
Initial reports suggested they were mountaineers. Rescue teams have recovered all four bodies, she added.
A fifth member of the group, a French national, survived unharmed and has been evacuated.
