Indian Troops Kill Eleven Suspected Islamic Militants

  • VOA News

India says its security forces have killed 11 suspected Islamic militants who infiltrated into Indian-controlled Kashmir from the Pakistani part of Kashmir.

Military officials say the 11 were killed during a gunbattle early on Friday. Officials say the militants opened fire after Indian troops ordered them to surrender.

India accuses Pakistan of arming and funding Kashmiri rebels, a charge Islamabad denies. Both nations claim all of Kashmir and have fought two of their three wars over the Himalayan region.

The two sides have been engaged in a peace process since January 2004 to resolve all of their disputes, including Kashmir.
