41 villages have still not been reached

According to an official military statement on Wednesday, forty-one earthquake-hit villages in the North West Frontier Province have not yet been reached since the October 8 earthquake due to their inaccessibility.

“The Pakistan army is providing supplies and relief goods to 41 villages through helicopters which have not physically accessed the villages so far,” it added.

These villages have been identified and troops would reach them within 24 hours, the army hoped. The statement, however, did not identify the villages nor did it give information about how many people were in need of medical treatment. The statement said the army “evacuated all serious casualties” from the areas of the NWFP where the earthquake wrecked havoc on October 8.
