Rescuers looking for more survivors among the rubble of a landslide at an Australian ski resort unearthed two more bodies last night, bringing the confirmed death toll to 12. As cloudy, windy weather closed in on the village of Thredbo, in the Snowy Mountains south of Sydney, rescuers pulled another two dead men from the heap of broken concrete, twisted metal, rocks, dirt and timber. Six people are still missing.

On Saturday night, survivor Stuart Diver, a 27-year-old ski instructor, was rescued from the debris after being trapped for three freezing nights in a concrete tomb.
