110 Die in Himalayas

JAMMU, India () -- Up to 110 people are believed dead in avalanches and landslides that roared down Himalayan mountainsides along the Srinagar-Jammu highway, police said Thursday.


Police said as many as five buses had plunged off the 180-kilometer road in the Himalayan foothills since heavy snowfalls hit the area three days ago.


The United News of India news agency said 65 bodies had been recovered since the avalanches began. More were thought to be buried in the snow.
