BERLIN (AP) — The Latest on heavy snowfall across Europe (all times local):

2:10 p.m.

Bosnian authorities say three people have died and 17 others have been injured in car and bus crashes on snowy roads across in the Balkan nation.

Authorities say three people died and three others were injured in two separate car accidents on icy roads near the northwestern town of Laktasi. Fourteen other people were hurt, three of them seriously, when the bus they were riding on skidded off a snow-covered road Monday in central Bosnia and overturned.

A snowplow also overturned while clearing a highway at Komar Mountain in central Bosnia.

Parts of Europe, especially in the Alps, have been hit by days of heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures that sparked deadly avalanches and disrupted travel on planes, trains and highways. The cold snap and snow are forecast to continue through the week.

9:45 a.m.

Officials say a large avalanche has slammed into a hotel in southern Germany, damaging the building but causing no injuries.

A spokeswoman for Oberallgaeu regional authorities said the hotel's 100 guests were evacuated to other dwellings in the village of Balderschwang.

Brigitte Kloepf told The Associated Press that about 1,100 people are unable to leave Balderschwang, near the Austrian border, because of an avalanche risk on roads following days of intense snowfall.

Authorities in parts of Austria, Germany and Switzerland have warned that further snow and rainfall is raising the risk of avalanches, and increase the weight on snow-laden roofs.

Dozens of people have died in avalanches or weather-related accidents across central Europe in recent days.

Germany's top security official planned to visit affected areas Monday.
