Militants attack Indian base in Kashmir

Militants have attacked an Indian army camp in Indian-administered Kashmir with gunfire and grenades, killing one border guard and wounding another. Indian troops returned fire from the camp in the garrison town of Baramulla, 50km (30 miles) north-west of Srinagar, the main city in Kashmir.

The camp is the local headquarters of a counter-insurgency military unit. The attack came three days after the Indian army said it had carried out a “surgical strike” in the region. The army said it had destroyed “terrorist launching pads” used by militants with support from Pakistan, but the Pakistani military disputed this.

The Indian assault followed the deadliest attack on one of its bases in Kashmir in years. On 18 September, militants entered an army base in the town of Uri and killed 18 soldiers.
