4 Killed, 6 Wounded in Rebel Attacks in Indian Kashmir


Authorities in Indian Kashmir say a suspected Islamic militant and three policemen have been killed and at least six people wounded in two separate incidents.

Police say one militant and three policemen were killed during a raid late Tuesday on a house in a village northeast of Jammu city. They say three houses were damaged in the fighting.

In a separate incident in Srinagar Wednesday, suspected militants lobbed a grenade at police officers, wounding at least two policemen and four civilians.

Militant separatist groups in Indian Kashmir continue attacks against government targets, saying they oppose the ongoing peace process between India and Pakistan.

Kashmiri militants have been fighting since 1989 for Kashmir's independence or its merger with Pakistan. The insurgency has claimed tens of thousand of lives.
