BERLIN (AP) – Austrian emergency services are saying that two people are believed to have died in a rafting accident in the Alpine nation.

The Austria Press Agency reported that a boat apparently capsized Monday on a narrow section of the Salzach River, upstream from the city of Salzburg and near the German border.
