Two In­dian sol­diers killed in Kash­mir cross bor­der fir­ing

The Myanmar Times - - World -

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.
