Kashmir avalanche kills two Polish skiers
Two Polish skiers have died in an avalanche at a Himalayan ski resort in Indian-controlled Kashmir and 21 people were rescued.
A total of 21 foreigners and their two Kashmiri guides were caught in a massive avalanche and buried under the snow on Wednesday as they were skiing high in the mountains near the tourist town of Gulmarg, police say.
The Pirpanjal mountain range in the western Himalayas is a popular skiing destination for both Indians and foreigners.
In 2010, at least 17 Indian soldiers were killed after an avalanche hit the Indian army’s High Altitude Warfare School in Gulmarg during a training session.
