At least 424 deaths are being blamed on heavy rains and snow which have soaked Pakistan for the past two weeks, causing dam breaks, flooding and avalanches, according to officials. The inclement weather is also being blamed for some 104 deaths in neighboring Afghanistan, a health ministry official said. Across northern Pakistan and in the Pakistan-held section of Kashmir, 209 people have been killed as a result of several snow avalanches and flooding since Friday, Pakistan officials said on Sunday.
