ISLAMABAD: Entry of tourists to Gilgit-Baltistan has been banned for next two days as work continues to clear the Karakoram Highway and Babusar road of landslides.

According to a notification issued by the Diamer divisional commissioner Dildar Malik, the entry of tourists via Babusar and KKH had been banned for 48 hours for safety of their lives as landslides continued in Tatta Pani section of KKH after recent rains.
