    Two Chinese engineers and as many Pakistanis were killed during the extension work of Tarbela Dam today when the shuttering of a portion caved in.

    A spokesman of the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) said the work on the fourth extension of Tarbela Dam was underway when the shuttering fell.

    "Three Chinese nationals and eight Pakistanis were trapped under the fallen shuttering. They were rescued and shifted to nearby health facility where doctors pronounced two Chinese engineers and as many Pakistanis dead. The condition of third Chinese who has been shifted to a hospital in Islamabad is stated to be critical," the spokesman said.

    Tarbela Dam on the Indus River is the largest earth filled dam in the world and fifth largest by structural volume and located 50 kms from Islamabad.

    WAPDA has announced compensation for the dead and injured.

    "The WAPDA chairman has also constituted a committee to probe the matter," he said.
