SRINAGAR, India (AFP) — Avalanches triggered by the worst snowfall in years killed 22 people and left 15 missing in Indian Kashmir, police said on Saturday, as hundreds of stranded people were evacuated.

Kashmir, where a revolt against Indian rule has raged for decades, has been blanketed by snow for the past six days, cutting off the region's main highway to the outside world.
