NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — At least 34 people died and almost 200 were wounded in a major thunderstorm that hit the north of Pakistan, local media reported Thursday.
Dunya News TV reported on Thursday that India’s Punjab state, bordering Pakistan, was hit by dust and wind storms on Wednesday. The storms led to power cuts, building collapses and fires. Most victims died under collapsing buildings, fallen trees and billboards.
Flight operations were halted at the Benazir International Airport in Islamabad, and city transport service was also suspended, Geo TV said. But on Thursday morning the airport resumed flights.
