At least 22 tourists died in freezing temperatures after being stranded in their vehicles in northern Pakistan, where thousands had flocked to enjoy the snow.  Some 1,000 vehicles are still stranded in Murree, 40 miles northeast of the capital Islamabad.  'The local people are delivering blankets and food. Now we are only allowing vehicles carrying blankets and food towards Murree,' Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Pakistan's interior minister, said. Army platoons and paramilitary forces have been deployed to help the civil administration in rescue operations, he said.
