The Heat: India-Pakistan tensions

The Heat

Kashmir unrest

Indian authorities blame Pakistan for the recent terrorist attack in Kashmir that killed more than 40 soldiers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave what he called ‘full freedom’ to the Indian army to respond. On Monday, four more Indian soldiers were killed along with three militants and two others in a gun battle that erupted during a raid on suspected militants in the same region.

The situation there, still very tense.
