At least eight labourers were killed and several others went missing after a passenger van got buried by a landslide at Karakoram Highway in Kohistan district. The landslide completely buried the van late Monday night, and the rescue operation started early Tuesday morning by authorities and volunteers. Police said that the van was carrying about 12 labourers of Dasu Hydro Power project, who were on their way home from work. Rescue teams recovered eight bodies after digging through the piles of mud and rock manually, and efforts were underway to rescue the remaining people by removing the debris with heavy machinery summoned at the site by the rescue officials.
