ISLAMABAD (AP) — 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.
