An avalanche on the Boltoro Glacier in Pakistan has killed three porters. There are injured people still trapped under the avalanche. Four others are reported as being critically injured.
The Baltoro Glacier is the easiest way for climbers to make their way to K2 and other surrounding peaks such as Broad Peak and Gasherbrum 1 and 2. It is the 5th largest glacier in the world outside of the polar areas.
The Pakistan government were considering their options. They are thinking of sending a helicopter to the avalanche area to help rescue those still trapped.
