Suspected Islamic militants on Saturday attacked an Indian army camp in a Hindu-dominated town in the Indian-controlled portion of Kashmir, killing two soldiers and wounding six others, an army spokesman said.
At least two soldiers were killed and six others were wounded in the gun and grenade attack in the town of Kathua, which had not seen any previous rebel violence, said Lt. Col. R.K. Chiber. Three of the wounded soldiers were in serious condition, he said.
The attack came despite a cease-fire called by Kashmir's biggest militant group in the aftermath of last week's earthquake that killed tens of thousands of people in the Himalayan region, split between India and Pakistan.
