Five tourists killed, 10 injured as bus falls into Hunza ditch

Hunza (HRNW) Heavy rains have wrecked havoc in most parts of northern Pakistan, causing at least six deaths and injuring 19 others in rain-related incidents, including a passenger bus skidding off the road in Gilgit Baltistan.

The monsoon rains have led to landslides and floods which have blocked several routes leading to and from Gilgit, Skardu, and other areas in northern Pakistan.

Torrential rains have resulted in hill torrents in plain areas in central Pakistan which have led to roofs of houses caving in and sweeping away people and property.

As a result of the emerging situation, district administration in hilly areas have advised tourists to either stay away until the rain spells pass or to check the weather forecast before venturing outside and to limit any unnecessary travel.
