India pays tribute to soldiers killed in Kashmir dispute

Soldiers and officers of the Indian army pay tribute to two of their men killed on Tuesday in a firefight on the military control line of Kashmir. The body of one soldier was said to have been found "badly mutiliated" in a forested area on the side controlled by India. India has blamed the incident on Pakistan. Shootouts and small skirmishes between the two countries are common along the 740-kilometre disputed border, despite a ceasefire and a recent improvement in relations between India and Pakistan. Islamabad has denied the latest Indian allegations. A Pakistani military spokesman said the Indian claims were "propaganda" aimed at diverting attention from a clash along the border two days earlier in which Pakistan said one of its soldiers was killed - a claim denied in turn by India India and Pakistan have fought three wars since their independence in 1947, two of them over Kashmir.
