Search for avalanche survivors in Kashmir continues


The search for 140 people, 129 of them Pakistani soldiers, buried by an avalanche near the Siachen Glacier in Kashmir is continuing.

The military camp, located 15,000ft (4,572 m) above sea level in Kashmir's Gayari district, near the border with India, was engulfed by snow on April 7.

Kashmir has been partitioned between India and Pakistan since 1947.
