Muzaffarabad: Pakistani police say a mudslide after heavy rains killed seven members of a single family, including five children, in Pakistani-occupied Kashmir.

Police official Raja Zulqarnain said on Sunday that the seven died when their house collapsed the previous day in the village of Ajeera. Two other village homes were damaged. The village lies near the Line of Control in the district of Rawla Kot.

Landslides and flash floods are common across Pakistan during the monsoon season, especially in the mountains, killing many people every year.
