LAHORE: Devastation on a massive scale has been caused in parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Gilgit-Baltistan as a result of rains and land-sliding, resulting in massive loss of life and property.

25 people, including 13 women, have died in the Kandia area of Kohistan because of a giant boulder falling on the houses in an area; the bodies of the deceased are being taken out from the debris.

Relief work in the affected areas is ongoing however the activities have been slowed as a result of land sliding in the area and ground contact being cut-off.
