Landslide victims of Hunza stage protest against GB government

Gilgit: Over a hundred residents of Attabad in Hunza on Sunday staged a demonstration outside National Press Club against the Gilgit-Baltistan government for delaying reconstruction of their riverside village destroyed by landslides last month.

Carrying placards and banners with slogans against Gilgit-Baltistan government, they said the landslide-affected families had been waiting for start of reconstruction work in their village. They said the regional government had even failed to provide them alternative shelter until reconstruction of their houses.
