Blast Wounds 13 in Indian Kashmir


At least 13 people have been wounded by a powerful explosion near an Indian military camp in Srinagar, summer capital of Indian Kashmir.

Witnesses say at least five Indian soldiers were among the injured. Police say the blast was caused by a car bomb. It is unclear who carried out Tuesday's attack.

Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan, and rebel groups have been fighting for the region's independence from India, or its merger with Pakistan, since 1989.

The explosion came hours after top diplomats from India and Pakistan resumed peace talks in New Delhi.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
