Marmolada disaster symbol of climate change says Mattarella

No hope without everyone's cooperation on climate says president

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 5 - Italian President Sergio Mattarella linked Sunday's Marmolada glacier disaster in northern Italy to the climate crisis during a visit to Mozambique on Tuesday.
    "We have spoken of the Marmolada tragedy as an element that is symbolic of what climate change, if not governed, is producing around the world," Mattarella said in Maputo beside Mozambique President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi "It requires everyone's full cooperation, otherwise it is not governed.
    "There are countries that are not making efforts (on this front).
    "It is necessary to call on everyone to make further commitments.
    "There is no hope without everyone's cooperation".
    Seven people are confirmed to have died after a massive chunk of the glacier broke away, causing a deadly avalanche of ice and rock.
    The death toll looks set to rise as 13 people are still missing.
