Pakistan snowstorm: At least 16 tourists have died and hundreds still stranded


The tourists, who were stuck in a traffic jam, suffered from a “food crisis” after being stranded, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said in a video statement Saturday.

Rashid added that the government had called army and civil armed forces for emergency rescue operations for “nearly a thousand” vehicles still stranded.

Murree is a resort town northeast of the capital Islamabad.

All roads to Murree will be closed for tourists and only open for people providing aid to those still stranded, the minister added.
