An avalanche in Pakistan-administered Kashmir has killed at least 11 people, Pakistan's military said.
According to the Associated Press, the avalanche occurred on Friday in the Sharda sector of the Himalayas. Most of the men were in the military, and a rescue operation to recover the missing persons is underway.
However, the search has been hampered by bad weather, BBC reported.
Avalanches and landslides are common in Kashmir. Last April, an avalanche at the Siachen Glacier killed 140 people, including 129 soldiers.
