Officials hoard tents vital to survivors

Tents and relief supplies donated by international charities for survivors of a deadly earthquake in Pakistan-administered Kashmir are being hoarded by local officials, said human rights groups and volunteers working in the stricken region.
The charges come with the onset of the freezing Himalayan winter, when shelter can mean the difference between life and death for hundreds of thousands of families left homeless.
