The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

NEW DELHI: In­dian and Pak­istani forces ex­changed fire on Tues­day in the dis­puted Hi­malayan re­gion of Kash­mir, In­dian of­fi­cials said, two days after a mil­i­tant at­tack killed 18 sol­diers in the area. In­dian of­fi­cials said their mil­i­tary posts at the bor­der town of Uri came un­der heavy fire from Pak­istani forces shoot­ing across the Line of Con­trol, the mil­i­tary fron­tier which di­vides the dis­puted Kash­mir re­gion into two parts, one ad­min­is­tered by In­dia and the other by Pak­istan. “Our forces re­tal­i­ated and the ex­change of fire con­tin­ued for about an hour,” an army spokesman said. – dpa
