Uttarakhand dam disaster: Race to save people trapped inside India tunnel

BBC NEWS   09 February 2021   India   Uttarakhand  

Emergency teams are working round the clock to rescue up to 35 people believed to be trapped in a tunnel in northern India.
The tunnel was blocked after a huge flood in the state of Uttarakhand on Sunday in which 28 people have been killed, and as many as 150 are missing.
A piece of a Himalayan glacier is believed to have fallen into a river and triggered the deluge.
The main rescue effort is focused on an 8.3km (5.1-mile) long tunnel.
