The Heat: India-Pakistan tensions

The Heat

It’s a prolonged dispute – for seven decades, India and Pakistan have been fighting over the mountainous region of Kashmir.

The latest flare-up began when a suicide attack killed more than 40 Indian soldiers – bringing the two nuclear countries closer to armed conflict.
