    The Most Trickiest part is the weather , if is is clear then Rescuers will be Air Dropped via hellies , but if it is not then they will have to go on foot & that will take time , lets just pray weather stays clear until the Rescue is complete.

    A security official says an avalanche has buried 130 Pakistani soldiers in a Himalayan region close to India.

    The incident happened early Saturday on the Siachen Glacier, where thousands of Pakistani and Indian troops are based.

    The security official says snow engulfed a battalion headquarters in Gayari district.

    He spoke anonymously because the military had yet to release a formal statement.

    Siachen is on the northern tip of the divided Kashmir region claimed by both India and Pakistan.

    What a sad and unfortunate thing! May god gives strength to their families.

    Couple of months back, we lost 17 of our Indian soldiers during the avalanche tragedies.

    i dont understand the news...
    what they mean by "trapped"?
    the soldiers are transported up there by lama helicopters......even if an avalanch blocks the road still they arent trapped as it wont stop lama helis from going up there?
    and its highly unlikely to have 150 soldiers buried by an avalanch.
    There is something wrong with the news.
