India Accuses Pakistan of Killing 5 Soliders in Kashmir

India has accused Pakistani troops of killing five Indian soldiers in an attack on a military post in the disputed territory of Kashmir.

The incident comes as the two nations are considering re-starting peace talks that stalled in January.

The chief minister of Indian Kashmir, Omar Abdullah said on Twitter that "these incidents don't help efforts to normalise or even improve relations" with Pakistan and called into question Islamabad's recent peace overtures.

Pakistan has denied killing the soldiers.

Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan and they have fought two wars over its control.
