Suspected Islamic militants shot and killed the education minister of Indian-controlled Kashmir at his home Tuesday during a brazen raid on a high-security neighborhood that also left at least three others dead and eight injured, police said. Soldiers were exchanging fire with militants holed up at the home of Ghulam Nabi Lone, education minister of India's Jammu-Kashmir state, said police Supt. Munir Khan, adding that Lone had died on the way to a hospital. Amid the standoff, the al-Mansoorian militant group claimed the responsibility for the attack in the Tusli Bagh area of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian's part of Kashmir, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. The attack came despite an order from the United Jihad Council, an umbrella organization of militant groups, to suspend attacks after the Oct. 8 quake that devastated parts of Indian-controlled Kashmir and a wide swath of Pakistan's portion of the Himalayan territory.
