NEW DELHI — More than 500 people trapped on a snowbound mountain road in India's Kashmir province have been rescued by air force helicopters and army winter warfare troops, the Defense Ministry said.

More than 100 seriously injured people were among those evacuated by helicopter from buses, trucks and army vehicles stranded along the Srinagar-Leh highway, a ministry spokesman said last week.
