Officials in Pakistani Kashmir have sharply raised estimates of the death toll in their region to at least 40-thousand from the devastating earthquake eight days ago.
That brings Pakistan's total death toll to more than 54-thousand.
The prime minister's spokesman, Sikandar Hayat Khan in the Pakistani-controlled portion of the Himalayan region, said the death toll could still rise as relief teams reach remote villages.
Also Sunday, torrential downpours and cold temperatures forced the cancellation of all airborne relief efforts in Pakistani Kashmir, with homeless earthquake survivors still desperate for aid.
Military officials say the bad weather is likely to cause additional casualties among the homeless facing a long Himalayan winter.
A Pakistani military helicopter crashed Saturday while delivering relief supplies to otherwise inaccessible areas, killing all six soldiers on board.
Relief flights were also called off on the Indian side of the divided Himalayan region, where more than 14-hundred people died in the earthquake.
