>> India, clamping down on Kashmir, as violence escalates. The country stepping up patrols along its de facto border with Pakistan, Monday, Indian troops sent down ravines that cut across the mountainous region, and reinforcing border patrols to stare down their Pakistani counterparts. It's all a response to the deaths of 17 soldiers at the hands of gunmen, at a nearby army base, on Sunday.
One of the deadliest attacks in Kashmir, yet. India blames its arch-rival neighbor for the attack. One general saying the killings bore the hallmarks of Pakistan-based insurgents Jaish-e-Mohammed. Pakistan denies sending fighters into the region that's divided the two countries since 1947. The attack hit in the middle of a wider security lock-down in Kashmir after two months of sometimes deadly and violent protests over a Pakistan back militant leader who was killed.
Everyday life there brought to a standstill under a harsh daily curfew.
