India says air strikes launched against militants in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

It’s a major escalation in tensions between two nuclear powers. India carried out air strikes this morning in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.

The Indian government says it targeted a terrorist training camp run by Jaish-e-Mohammed, a militant group which claimed responsibility for a bombing that killed 40 paramilitary police earlier this month. Pakistan said they would respond at a time and place of their choosing.
