Two hikers were swept away and killed by an avalanche Saturday in the French Pyrenees and another was injured, police said.

The three French nationals had gone snowshoeing near the village of Rabat-les-Trois-Seigneurs when the avalanche struck on a 300-metre (1,000-feet) stretch.

One of them, a 27-year-old, managed to extricate himself and alert rescue services despite serious injuries.

The dead are a 25-year-old woman from the southwestern city of Toulouse and a 32-year-old man, also from the region.
