A severe aftershock jolted northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, a day after India sharply curtailed plans, for now, to open its Kashmir border with Pakistan to help survivors of the region's massive Oct. 8 quake. There were no immediate reports of damage from Sunday's temblor in Pakistan's portion of Kashmir, but it measured 6.0 -the highest magnitude so far for an aftershock of last month's massive 7.6-magnitude quake, seismologists in the northwestern city of Peshawar said. The 1,190 aftershocks since that quake have sparked landslides that added to the debris blocking roads needed to distribute much-needed aid to remote mountain settlements. Forecasts of snow in northern Pakistan, meanwhile, added to the ordeal for hundreds of thousands of survivors still without shelter nearly a month after the quake, as UN and other aid agencies struggle with limited budgets to deliver help by helicopter before winter.
