India: 2 soldiers killed in firefight with Pakistani troops

Two Indian soldiers died in a firefight Tuesday with Pakistan army troops in Indian-administered Kashmir, the Indian Army said in a statement, amid heightened tensions in the region. India said a group of Pakistani troops had crossed the Line of Control - the de facto border between India and Pakistan in the disputed Kashmir region. A spokesman for the Pakistani military denied the report, calling it a "baseless allegation."

    These incidents are nothing new. Who provokes, always remains contentious.
    Kashmir issue remains the bone of contention. We feel obliged to meddle everywhere but Kashmir. India wants our nose never in there.
    good morning@chrissy@Ted.
