At least 37 survivors of the devastating 2005 earthquake in Pakistani Kashmir have been killed in landslides triggered by heavy rains, police said on Wednesday.

Twenty-seven people, mostly women, died and 16 were injured when a huge landslide hit Doba Syedan village in the Jhleum Valley area late on Tuesday, police spokesman Javed Ahmed said.

Another ten were killed at Jabar Daray village in the mountainous Bagh district on Tuesday, Ahmed said.
