India accused Pakistan of unprovoked heavy firing from across the border of Kashmir today. This, after Pakistan saidyesterday its military was on full alert and ready to retaliate following troop movements on the Indian side of theborder.

All of this has increased concerns about the dangers of a more substantial military stand-off between the two nuclearrivals.

It follows a visit to the region by Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell that was supposed to decrease tension.
