>> Pakistan will pay for this misadventure.>> A warning from India's Defense Minister to Pakistan after gunfire erupted at an army camp over the weekend in the disputed region of Kashmir. Nine people died after militants stormed the camp's family housing before dawn on Saturday, including five soldiers and one civilian, a soldier's father.
Among the 10 injured, children and a pregnant woman who gave birth in Jammu City after she was hit by gunfire, and airlifted to hospital. India has pointed the finger at the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group. Pakistan calls that accusation unfounded and irresponsible, and says it's a ploy to divert attention from what it calls India's brutality in Kashmir.
The disputed region is a Muslim majority area in the Himalayas. Both India and Pakistan claim it in full but rule in part. And have fought two wars over it since independence from Britain. A line of control divides the region. India has long accused Pakistan of training and arming militants, then sending them across it.
Pakistan denies the claims. According to residents, conflict in Kashmir has escalated in the past few weeks. They say they hear gunfire and see smoke rising from the trees. Pakistan has warned India against any cross border strikes in retaliation for the deadly weekend attack.
