An injured Indian pilgrim cries in pain as Indian army soldiers carry him after he was rescued from the higher reaches of mountains at a makeshift helipad at Joshimath, in northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, Monday, June 24, 2013. A top official said the death toll in northern India could rise as army soldiers clear the debris from towns and villages flattened by landslides and monsoon flooding. Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said the number of people who have perished in the floods that washed away thousands of homes could go beyond the 1,000 deaths reported so far.
