    After an unfortunate 10 hour delay involving lack of landing permission from the Iranian government, the Turkish Special Forces rescue team of 89 people and equipment arrived in Islamabad's airport yesterday evening. Ignoring advice from the Pakistani government to head off on rescue missions the next morning, the team left Islamabad last night, crossing destroyed roads to get to the devastated area of Muzafferabad early the next morning.

    The Turkish team's search and rescue efforts on reaching Muzafferebad after a sleepless night's journey began immediately. They were able to pull a 42 year old woman named Shiraz, who had been waiting for 52 hours to be rescued, out the rubble and return her to life. Their relief efforts are continuing on through the week. Meanwhile, in Kashmir, a 6 person Turkish rescue team from the renowned AKUT rescue group were fired on by men with rifles who thought they were looters. The AKUT team had been on a nighttime rescue mission, under orders from United Nations forces in Kashmir.
