Indian soldier killed in Kashmir

An Indian soldier was killed when Pakistani snipers allegedly shot across the sensitive border in divided Kashmir, an Indian paramilitary official said yesterday, leading to a gunfight.
The incident occurred late Saturday in Indian Kashmir's Suchetgarh region, a Border Security Force (BSF) official said after the shooting shattered more than a year of calm along the militarised border in the Himalayan region.
"Pakistani snipers fired when a BSF party was on patrolling duty," said the Indian officer, who did not wish to be named.
BSF troopers retaliated, leading to a brief exchange of gunfire. It was not immediately known if Pakistani soldiers suffered casualties.
