Ten trapped by avalanche in J&K

Rescuers yesterday battled to reach the site of an avalanche that buried 10 people in Indian-administered Kashmir following two days of heavy snowfall across the region, police said.

The avalanche in Banihal came after two days of heavy snowfall that cut electricity supplies to many areas and blocked roads.
