Indian troops raid Pakistani military post, killing one

ISLAMABAD, Jan 6 — Indian troops raided a Pakistani military post today, killing one soldier and injuring another, the Pakistani military said, an incident that could heighten tensions between the two nuclear powers. 

The Pakistani army repulsed the attack on the Sawan Patra checkpost in Kashmir, an army spokesman said in a statement. 

The two sides then exchanged fire across the Line of Control, an internationally recognised line in the disputed Kashmir region patrolled by troops from both countries. — Reuters
