SRINAGAR (AFP) - Seven Indian soldiers died Tuesday when an avalanche engulfed their bunker near the Line of Control, the army said. It occurred in the northern Karnah district close to the LoC. Seven soldiers were killed and eight others escaped to safety without any major injuries, army spokesman JS Brar told AFP. It has snowed heavily in the past week in upper reaches of the mountainous region around Baraf Post, the Indian army outpost.
