Islamabad, June 11 (ANI): Making rapid progress at the Gayari sector, Pakistani army rescue teams in Siachen have recovered three more bodies.
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), 13 bodies have been recovered so far since rescue operations began after an avalanche buried 140 people, including 129 soldiers and 11 civilian employees, in the late hours of April 7, 2012, reports The Express Tribune.
Four bodies are yet to be identified.
Earlier on May 29, the army had declared the soldiers and civilians martyrs after 52 days since the tragedy.
More than 450 rescuers, including foreign teams, have been working in sub-zero temperatures at the site, digging tunnels into the mass of snow and ice.
The army has vowed to continue the operation until all the bodies are recovered. (ANI)
