In Kashmir, ten Islamic terrorists were killed in several incidents. The Islamic separatists have been completely driven out of several parts of the region, and the army is planning to reduce its troop strength in Kashmir over the next year.
Meanwhile, Pakistan is moving 4,000 more troops to the Afghan border. A larger number of pro-Taliban armed Pakistanis are crossing the border to fight Afghan and American troops in Afghanistan. Many dead Pakistanis have been identified in Afghanistan and the Pakistani government is embarrassed by their inability to keep armed Pakistanis out of Afghanistan.
