Fresh Italo-French row over Mt Blanc border (2)

Chamonix mayor sparks protests

(ANSA) - Courmayeur, September 7 - A fresh border dispute erupted on Mt Blanc Monday between Italy and France. The mayor of Chamonix started the row by blocking access to the Gigante (Giant) glacier from the Torino refuge, saying it was French territory. This sparked protests in Courmayeur with demonstrators saying "it's Italy up there, they have no competence". There have been several disputes about the exact border line on Europe's highest mountain over the last few years.
