ROME - Some 17 people remain unaccounted for a day after a huge chunk of an Alpine glacier broke off and slammed into hikers in northern Italy, officials said Monday.At least six people died and 9 were injured by the avalanche of ice, snow and large rocks thundering down the slope of the mountain topped by the Marmolada glacier Sunday afternoon.Trento Prosecutor Sandro Raimondi said that 17 hikers were believed to be missing, the Italian news agency LaPresse reported.Veneto regional Gov. Luca Zaia said some of those hiking in the area on Sunday were roped together as they climbed.Nationalities of the known dead haven't been disclosed, and conditions were too dangerous Monday morning for rescue crews with dogs to resume the search for those missing or to bring down the bodies.The bodies will be brought to an ice skating rink in the resort town of Canazei in the Dolomite mountain range for identification.Raimondi was quoted as saying two of the nine injured are Germans.

Zaia told reporters that one of the Germans was a 65-year-old man.

Kardashian wasn't at the show because she's in Italy for her sister Kourtney Kardashian's wedding. "I never imagined this would be my life," he said, adding when he first started at 20 years old he was "just a skinny kid and no one knew what race I was." But he says now everyone knows he’s White because he "became hugely successful while barely showing up to work." FILE - Pete Davidson attends The 2022 Met Gala Celebrating "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 02, 2022 in New York City.  (Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue)In a reference to Will Smith slapping "SNL" alum Chris Rock, Davidson self-deprecatingly joked that on one hand, he doesn’t condone audience members jumping onstage to hit comedians but "on the other it’s how I know all my shows will be sold out."The comedian said he would miss "SNL" creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels who he said gives him the best advice, including during his audition for the show."He looked me right in the eye and said 'I don't know, I don't think you're right for this show, so let's screw this up together,' " Davidson said.

Pope Francis to visit Canada in July with stops in Alberta, Quebec, Nunavut
Pope Francis will stop in Alberta, Quebec and Nunavut during his visit to Canada this summer.It says the capital cities of Edmonton, Quebec City and Iqaluit will act as bases for the trip from July 24 to 29.The visit comes after the Pope’s historic apology last month for the Roman Catholic Church’s role in residential schools in Canada.Archbishop Richard Smith of Edmonton, general coordinator of the trip for the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, says it will be another important step for healing and reconciliation. Pope Francis’ visit to Canada could include stops in Alberta, Quebec: source Smith says the locations were chosen by the Vatican and the Pope’s mobility and health issues had to be considered.He says specific sites and a formal program are to be developed with Indigenous partners.An estimated 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend residential schools and more than 60 per cent of the schools were run by the Catholic Church.On April 1, after meetings over several days with First Nations, Inuit and Metis groups at the Vatican, Pope Francis apologized for the deplorable conduct of church members involved in residential schools.“I want to say to you with all my heart: I am very sorry,” Francis said in Italian before a room of nearly 200 Indigenous delegates.
