An avalanche buried over 100 Pakistani soldiers near the Siachen glacier on the border with India on Saturday, the Pakistani army spokesman said.
Several Pakistani television channels reported earlier that about 150 soldiers were trapped.
“At six o’clock this morning this avalanche hit a (military) headquarters. Over 100 soldiers and personnel are trapped,” said the spokesman, Major-General Athar Abbas, adding that rescue teams were headed to the scene.
He said the army would comment later on whether there were any casualties.
Rescuers have recovered some dead bodies of Pakistani soldiers, who were buried alive at the Siachen Glacier early Saturday, when an avalanche smashed into their camp, the military said.
