Italian rescue workers dug all night in deep snow and debris, and are continuing their search efforts Friday looking for some 30 missing people, including four children, staying at a luxury mountain resort in central Italy struck by an avalanche Wednesday. The avalanche that hit the four-star Hotel Rigopiano in the town of Farindole was likely triggered by a series of strong earthquakes that rattled the central region of Abruzzo earlier in the day. Television footage from the inside of the wrecked hotel showed massive mounds of snow pushing through a hotel wall into the lobby. Officials have confirmed finding two bodies, while Italian media said two more were located overnight. The only survivors so far are two men who were outside the hotel when the avalanche struck. News outlets had earlier reported that many people had been killed in the disaster, but local officials have not confirmed those reports.

By Saritha Rai Apple Inc. is willing to start making iPhones in India, but it wants a big helping hand from Narendra Modi’s government first. The Cupertino, California-based company is scheduled to meet with officials in New Delhi next week to discuss the prospects for setting up manufacturing facilities in the country this year.

There may not have been any league points at stake, but, considering the disastrous run of recent form Bristol City have been on, the victory at Fleetwood Town on Wednesday night was massive.Massive not only for the fact that it broke a sequence of eight games without a victory seven of those matches ending in defeat but I think that it would have increased the pressure on the board of directors to consider Lee Johnson's position. His future seems to be a common thread running...

With all the different visitors, “it’s been one of our busiest weekends yet,” said Roger, a 41-year-old cabdriver who declined to give his last name. “They’ve been supportive of Trump, protesting against Trump, and not giving a damn about the man,” he said. All I know is that business has been good. Real good.” Not everyone in the city is planning to stay in town for the event. Preston Mitchum, 30, a gay man, plans to go away for a few days with friends. Sweating on an exercise machine at a gym on Thursday afternoon, he noted most of his friends are gay or members of racial minorities – groups that generally opposed Trump’s candidacy. “We dont want to deal with the fact that we may have to get into an argument with someone (supporting Trump),” he said. On Wednesday night, Mitchum was among hundreds attending an outdoordance partyorganized by gay and transgender activists near the home of Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

DAVE JONES has a long-term aim at Hartlepool United – to leave a lasting impression. The newly-installed and vastly-experienced boss was yesterday unveiled to the media, and will take a watching brief when Pools meet Stevenage tomorrow. But for the future, the 60-year-old admitted: “The day I leave this club I want people to say he left a fantastic legacy, like at Wolves, Stockport, Southampton, Cardiff.’’ Jones has already made his mark at the club, installing a new backroom team with Kevin Cooper and Alex Armstrong taking on assistant manager positions. Chief scout Tommy Miller, goalkeeper coach Tony Caig and strength and conditioning coach Craig Hubbard have all left the club. Jones has not been in frontline management since leaving Sheffield Wednesday three years ago, but is relishing the chance to get stuck into the role. Chairman Gary Coxall has given Jones free reign to reshape the club in his own mould.

"This is a dream come true," declared Le Cleac'h, who was welcomed home by thousands of French sailing fans. "I hoped to win this race ten years ago but I finished second... today is a perfect day. My team have been amazing they're the dream team, and this is their day too." Briton Alex Thomson reached Les Sables-d'Olonne early on Friday morning but according to the official Vendee Globe website he won't be able to enter the harbour until lunchtime because of tidal conditions. The 42-year-old Welshman has been stalking his French rival for weeks, slowly closing a gap that at Cape Horn had been 900 nautical miles. On Wednesday he was just over 30 miles shy of Le Cleac'h but ultimately Thomson ran out of water in his attempt to become the first Briton to win the prestigious race. "I'm very happy for Alex, it's a great second place," said Le Cleac'h.
