SRINAGAR (AFP) At least three Indian soldiers and two suspected freedom fighters have died in a major gunbattle in the Indian-held Kashmir, the Indian Army said Wednesday. The three soldiers, who included one officer, were killed in the gunbattle which began Tuesday in Sopore town, south of Srinagar, and ended the next day. Six soldiers were injured in the fighting along with a civilian who was caught in the crossfire, army spokesman Col JS Brar said. Police said more freedom fighters might have died and that they were searching for bodies in the rubble of buildings destroyed in the battle. The clash started after Indian troops surrounded two houses where heavily armed freedom fighters had been holed up.
