"At least 19 people have been killed in recent firing between India and Pakistan across the disputed border in Kashmir. The two nuclear-armed powers have been ratcheting up shelling and small-arms fire for weeks, with each accusing the other of violating a 2003 ceasefire. ... Two of the three wars between India and Pakistan since partition and independence from Britain in 1947 have been fought over Kashmir." (11/01/16)
