Bloody drama in Pakistan: one of the dead - Russian

9
Another terrorist action took place in the Jammu-Kashmir region (the disputed zone between India and Pakistan, which is currently controlled by Islamabad). Militants broke into the hotel, which housed foreign climbers who arrived in Kashmir to conquer the mountain peaks. The attack killed ten people, among whom was one Russian and five citizens of Ukraine. Videographywhich terrorists usually use to witness their act, apparently, this time it was not conducted, or it has not yet been published on the Internet.


In general, Kashmir is a restless province, but the place where the bloody massacre (Gilgit-Baltistan) was arranged was always considered well controlled by Pakistani law enforcement officers, as tourists (most of all - climbers) from around the world constantly came here. However, this time Pakistani security ministers could not oppose anything to the daring outing of militants.

Rostourism press secretary, Mrs. Shchegolkova, first reported that the fact of the death of one Russian citizen in Pakistan has not yet been confirmed. However, Pakistani media say that one of the dead was found a Russian passport. Thus, the investigation needed to find out not only who is behind the rally of militants in Gilgit-Baltistan, but also the exact data on the victims. A few hours later, Pakistan received information that one of those killed was indeed a Russian citizen, and Rosturizm, in turn, in the person of the same Irina Shchegolkova, confirmed the death of a Russian who went to Pakistan to participate in the next conquest of the mountain peaks.

The details of the tragedy, according to Pakistani sources, are as follows: at about half past midnight the militants broke into the hotel, which is located in the immediate vicinity of Mount Nangaparbat, began to walk numbers and literally pull sleeping tourists from their beds. After 9 foreigners and one citizen of Pakistan (presumably the hotel’s security guard) ended up on the streets, all ten were shot. In this case, the Pakistani authorities are not talking specifically about 10 dead, but do the following wording: “no less than ten”. The bodies of the victims have already been delivered to Islamabad.

    I understand that “there can only be mountains above the mountains,” but there are enough of these mountains in quiet places, then the bikers go to Iraq, and then they drag them out of prison, then climbers go to the “controversial” hot region? It seems to me that adults should first learn about the dangers that await them and only then go to look for the 5th point of adventure hi

      Exactly. Finding a place to break your neck is not difficult. They would still go to the mountains in Afghanistan.

      In general, Kashmir is a turbulent province, but the place where the bloody massacre (Gilgit-Baltistan) was organized was always considered to be well controlled by Pakistani law enforcement officers, as tourists (mostly climbers) from all over the world constantly came here.

      It seems to me that people are not the first to fly there. According to this principle, you can not leave the house, enough to read the criminal chronicle.
      And mountains are avalanches, mountain air at heights, cold, gusts of wind, etc. etc. But it’s one thing when the mountains take life, and another - in the tourist zone, a group of armed men with a glove.

      Only women can be better than mountains ...
      Sorry for the people. The Georgians decided to abandon the mountain.
      Unfortunately, in many beautiful places it’s not calm.

    The ways of the Lord are, of course, mysterious, but if you search, you can find.

    According to information, it was the Taliban's revenge for the death of their commander or some other goat. It is strange that the victims of revenge were representatives of countries not involved in the death of that goat. And this is not the first time this is, involuntarily doubts arise about the logic of terrorists and once again proves the involvement of comrades from the West in such terrorist attacks. For some reason, representatives of countries directly involved in the destruction of the Taliban do not become victims of such acts.

      The main thing for them is that their faces are of European appearance. Most likely the tip was just that.

    Not everything is so smooth with us. In 2010, the KCR had the pleasure of climbing in Uzunkol, it was quiet, and border guards constantly monitored the situation in the gorges. But at the frontier post they told how, in 2008, they sketched two barmaleys with machine guns (as I understood by the technical surveillance equipment installed on strategic passes), they stood on the pass and took pictures against the backdrop of the mountains, then they began to descend into the gorge, so from the outpost the horse outfit went on alarm, ours managed to get to the place and set up an ambush, which was successfully carried out. We were told that it was the Georgians, that their muzzle was stuffed, the weapons were taken away and a week later at the end of the war they were handed over to the Georgian side. And the next year in 2011 we didn’t go. There was a WHO regime in Elbrus region. The bandits shot the bus with tourists, and on the Elbrus itself they blew up the support of the cable car. And the danger lies in wait for tourists most likely below, at an altitude it is difficult to reach climbers. So it’s not a matter of mountains, any tourist resting and by the sea could be among the victims. Be careful !!!
