India-Pakistan: March 26, 2002


Firing across the Line of Control in Kashmir left one Indian soldier dead. Pakistan said the US had not raised the issue of American troops pursuing al Qaeda and Taliban across the Afghan border into Pakistan, and that permission for such "hot pursuit" would not be given. Pakistan has also denied Britain permission to land Royal Marines in a Pakistani port (for movement overland to Afghanistan.) The government, however, says it will work to allow free passage by the British troops. India says the "proxy war" with Pakistan over (and in) Kashmir over the past 15 years has cost India nearly a billion dollars and killed some 61,000 people.
