H9 kashmir border shelling

In Kashmir, at least five members of the same family were killed on Sunday, as India and Pakistan both fired across the Line of Control that divides the disputed territory. The victims were a couple and their three children, who were gathering for breakfast when a mortar shell hit their home. The youngest victim was 8 years old. Meanwhile, a Kashmiri photojournalist named Kamran Yusuf has been released after being jailed for six months on charges of “waging war against India.” He was the first Kashmiri journalist to be arrested and held by India’s National Investigation Agency, which was formed in 2009 to fight terrorism.
