Suspected militants kill soldier in Indian Kashmir


SRINAGAR, India: Suspected militants on Wednesday killed at least one paramilitary soldier and wounded another seven after attacking their convoy in disputed Indian Kashmir, the region’s most senior police officer said. The militants fired on the convoy transporting Border Security Force (BSF) troops near the town of Udhampur, 250 kilometers south of the main city of Srinagar. The attack comes a week after militants stormed a police station in neighboring Punjab province in an 11-hour gun battle with officers that killed seven people. Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the two countries won independence from Britain in 1947, but both claim the territory in its entirety.
