Two people were killed in an avalanche as they were skiing off-piste at a resort in central Italy, emergency services said Sunday.

They said a third person was slightly injured and taken to hospital by helicopter following the accident in the resort of Campo Felice, 120 kilometers (75 miles) east of Rome.

Campo Felice is a small resort popular with Rome residents in the Apennine Mountains.
