Suicide Bomber Kills Five in Indian Kashmir

  • VOA News

Authorities in Indian Kashmir say a suicide bomber slammed a car packed with explosives into the back of a military convoy, killing six people, including himself, and wounding at least 20 others.

The authorities say the blast took place early Wednesday near a Christian missionary school in Srinagar, but that no children were hurt in the explosion.

Police say four soldiers and one civilian were among the dead, and that most of the wounded were passers-by.

The Pakistan-based Hizbul Mujahedin militant group claimed responsibility for the bombing. The group made no mention of a suicide bomber.

Muslim rebels in Indian Kashmir have been fighting since 1989 for the divided region's independence or its merger with Pakistan. The insurgency has claimed tens of thousands of lives.
