3 rebels, 2 Indian soldiers killed in Kashmir fighting
Police say three Kashmiri rebels and two Indian soldiers have been killed in a fierce gunbattle in the disputed Himalayan region.
Top police officer S.P. Vaid said on Sunday that the fighting overnight erupted after Indian troops raided southern Awneera village.
Vaid says at least three army soldiers were also wounded.
Anti-India protests followed the fighting, leading to clashes between rock-throwing residents and government forces who fired shotgun pellets and tear gas.
Separately, two police officials and a soldier were injured after rebels sprayed gunfire at government forces laying a cordon in northeastern Hajin area early Sunday.
Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan and both countries claim it in its entirety. Rebel groups have been fighting since 1989 against Indian rule.
