A snowmobile accident in the Italian Alps left six tourists dead and two others seriously injured. The eight -- all from eastern Europe, or Russia -- were riding on the vehicle across an unlit slope on Mount Cermis in the Trento region, rescuers said. Mount Cermis was the scene of two deadly cable car accidents in 1976 and 1998. In the latter a US military plane cut a cable supporting a gondola of an aerial tramway.
