At least seven Hindu pilgrims killed in Kashmir by militants

By Jordi Bou

July 11, 2017 - Seven Hindu pilgrims, including six women, have died in a firefight between militants and police in Indian-administered Kashmir, in the deadliest attack against Hindu pilgrims in the region since 2000.

The attack has stirred the ire of hardline Hindu groups tied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling party, who have long sought tough action against militants fighting Indian rule in the Muslim-majority region.
