A group of 16 Japanese tourists were cut off Monday in northern Pakistan in the wake of landslides caused by heavy rains and efforts were under way to clear the roads and bring them back to Islamabad, a tourist operator said.

Ejaz Sohail, tour manager at Islamabad-based Saiyah that organizes sightseeing, trekking and mountain-climbing excursions for foreigners, said a bus carrying the Japanese was stuck at Pattan in the Kohistan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
