India: 17 Indian soldiers killed in militant attack on Kashmir army base


Militants armed with guns and grenades killed 17 soldiers in a raid on Sunday on an army base in Kashmir, the worst such attack for more than a decade in the disputed Himalayan region.

The rebels broke into the base near the town of Uri before dawn and lobbed the grenades at tents and barracks housing the soldiers before opening fire, an army officer said requesting anonymity.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi vowed to punish those behind the “cowardly” and “despicable” hours-long attack that also left four militants dead and scores of soldiers injured.

“We strongly condemn the cowardly terror attack in Uri. I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished,” Modi said in a series of tweets.
