In the article "Indian troops in firefight with militants in Kashmir" found at, reported by CNN, the article described one of the many battles fought over a stretch of land called Kashmir on the border of India and Pakistan. Before India and Pakistan were two separate country's they were ruled by the British until a man by the name of Gandie led the rebellion and drove the British out, however afterwards Gandie was assassinated by Muslims which outraged the Indians after that Muslims and Indians had a civil war dividing the country into two separate country's. One problem though there was a piece of land called Kashmir which even today both country's are fighting over. Today one Indian officer and two soldiers were killed when three buildings full of rebels opened fire with automatic weapons. The three buildings were located in a town called Sopore a mountain town in Kashmir. This attack is yet another chapter in the battles over Kashmir.
