Heard about this on the radio this afternoon. 9 dead, others missing. It's a shame. My condolences to the families.

The New York Times had a fairly big story and a follow-up. I think the follow-up mentioned that several climbing sites had details. This is a big accident from what I read, including stranding some climbers above the point where the avalanche took out the fixed ropes.
