3 Killed in Avalanche

TBILISI, Georgia -- An avalanche killed three motorists on a key road linking Georgia with Russia, Interfax reported Thursday.

Heavy snowfall that caused the avalanche fell for a second day Thursday, paralyzing traffic on the Trans-Caucasian highway, the agency said.

At least four avalanches blocked the highway in the neighboring Russian region of North Ossetia, but no casualties were reported there, Itar-Tass said.
