Rescuers have found the bodies of three of four people buried by an avalanche in northern Norway earlier this month.

The bodies of the three, thought to have been hit by a January 2 avalanche in a mountainous region, were being recovered on the Blabafjellet, a 1442-metre mountain in the Tamok valley, close to the border where Norway, Sweden and Finland meet.

The disappearance of the four - one from Sweden and three from Finland - was reported by a fifth Norwegian member of the skiing expedition, who was ahead of the group when the avalanche struck.
