Rothang closes : ten dead

Workers and Lahaulis have continued to foot it over the Rothang La on the Manali-Leh highway while snow cover was manageable , until the last days weather hit. Manali Mountaineering Institute rescue workers found two more bodies yesterday , one unidentified, bringing it up to a total of ten . Fifteen workers were rescued in time and treated for frostbite. The pass is closed indefinitely , with harder weather to come.
