Indian Troops Killed In Militant Attack In Kashmir

Militants have attacked an Indian army camp in disputed Kashmir, killing at least 10 Indian security personnel.

Officials said three suspected militants were also killed in the December 5 gunbattle with Indian forces.

An army officer said the rebels hurled grenades and fired automatic rifles as they tried to enter an artillery unit's camp.

The camp is located near the heavily militarized line of control that divides the Himalayan region into an Indian-administered portion and a Pakistan-controlled side.

The two nuclear-armed nations have fought two of three wars since 1947 over rival claims to the territory.
