Pakistani officials have warned that an artificial lake formed by a landslide in northern Pakistan could burst its banks within days.

They say that about 25,000 people may have to be evacuated to higher ground as rising waters of the Hunza river threaten to submerge and destroy many villages.

Military engineers have been working to avert a major crisis and people are being evacuated to safer places.
