In Kashmir, rebel violence left a soldier, five civilians and ten rebels dead.

In Kashmir, along the Line of Control, Indian and Pakistani troops fought with artillery and rifles as India sought to establish a new fortified position on the line. At least four Indian troops were killed. At least one Pakistani soldier died. 

India says it will not withdraw any more troops from the Pakistan border until there is a reduction in the violence in Kashmir. India believes Pakistan is still allowing rebels to cross into Indian Kashmir. The rate of violence in Kashmir is as high as ever, with over ten rebel attacks a day, on average.

Along the Afghan border, Pakistani troops and tribal militias continue to arrest foreigners. Two Palestinians were caught recently, and sentenced to six months in a tribal jail, followed by deportation. Pakistani police have increased searches for al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists, as the terrorists increase their threatened, and actual, attacks.

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
