Rescue members discuss the flight route in Yining of Kazak Autonomous Prefecture of Ili, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, on Feb. 26, 2010. Two helicopters were sent at 10:30 a.m. Friday morning to rescue the hundreds of people who were trapped by two deadly avalanches in Ili. However, due to the dense fog which made the visibility lower than 100 meters, the two helicopters had to fly back one hour later. (Xinhua/Zhao Ge)
