Two Killed, 36 Wounded in Kashmir Grenade Attack

A grenade attack on a crowded market in Indian Kashmir killed at least two civilians on Monday and wounded 36, a paramilitary official said. The attack by suspected Muslim militants, the third in four days in the region, occurred in Shopian, about 50 km (30 miles) south of Srinagar, summer capital of India’s Jammu and Kashmir state. No militant group has claimed responsibility. Thirty people were injured in two grenade attacks in the state on Friday. Monday’s blast comes a day ahead of a meeting between President Bush and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf at Camp David. New Delhi, which accuses Islamabad of arming and training Kashmiri insurgents, hopes Washington will pressure Musharraf to end cross-border infiltration of militants. Musharraf has repeatedly said infiltration by militants has stopped. Pakistan also denies Indian charges that it foments violence in Kashmir but says it provides moral and diplomatic support for what it calls a Kashmiri freedom struggle. Full Story
