At least 18 people are missing, including eight Pakistani soldiers, after being hit by an avalanche in the disputed Kashmir region.

The avalanche struck in the mountainous Neelum Valley, in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The soldiers were searching for colleagues hit by an earlier avalanche when they were struck by a second fall.

Officials said the hunt for the missing was being hampered by bad weather and the region's harsh terrain.
