Islamabad (AFP) |



At least 42 people died and 21 were injured across Pakistan, with several still missing in weather-related incidents, while a further 39 people were killed in Afghanistan, according to officials in both countries.

Forecasts suggest more harsh weather is on the way.

Pakistani Kashmir was the worst-hit area, with 23 people killed and 10 others missing, Nouman Raja, head of the state disaster management authority, told AFP.

In the picturesque but conflict-riven Neelum Valley in Kashmir, heavy snowfall triggered an avalanche that killed at least 14 people.

Global warming is a Western weapon against Islam. This weather will cause even more grapes to be grown forcing them to convert it into wine and thus resulting in Sharia law being abandoned :p
