INDIAN SOLDIER KILLED IN HELD KASHMIR: AFP adds: An Indian soldier and two gunmen were killed in Occupied Kashmir in two separate gunbattles along the de facto border that divides the territory between India and Pakistan, on Sunday.

The two gunmen died when a group of suspected rebels crossed the border into Held Kashmir and were intercepted by Indian soldiers, triggering a gunbattle in Keran, 150 kilometres northwest of Srinagar.

"According to sources in the army two militants were killed early Sunday morning in the gunbattle," Javaid Gillani, the inspector general of police for the region, told AFP.

An Indian army soldier was killed Saturday night in a similar but separate gunbattle in the adjacent sector of Tangdhar along the heavily-militarised border, Gillani added.

The latest gunbattles follow a recent uptick in cross-border exchanges of heavy fire between Indian and Pakistani troops.
