Violence Leaves 12 Dead in Indian Kashmir

Indian security forces battled rebels in villages along the border in Kashmir and suspected insurgents detonated a grenade in a busy market Thursday, in violence that left 12 people dead. Elsewhere along the 700-mile Indian-Pakistani frontier, the armies of the two countries held their fire for a second day in the first formal cease-fire between the two nuclear-armed neighbors in 14 years.

A shopkeeper was killed by a grenade at a security checkpoint at Lal Chowk, Srinagar’s commercial hub, police officer Javed Ahmed said. Nine passersby were wounded.
