Two Indian soldiers killed in Kashmir cross border firing
The Indian army said two of its soldiers were killed in the latest exchange of cross-border firing with Pakistan along the border in Kashmir, amid heightened tensions between the countries. One soldier was killed as Indian troops pushed back against Pakistani “infiltrators” while another died in a separate incident, the military said. Tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals have soared since September when militants attacked an Indian army base in Kashmir leaving 19 soldiers dead. Since then the two sides have exchanged heavy fire almost daily.
