India and Pakistan tensions escalate over Kashmir


After a suicide bombing attack that killed over 40 Indian paramilitary serviceman last month, tensions have escalated between India and Pakistan over the disputed region of Kashmir. Last week, both countries were on the verge of nuclear warfare after both sides engaged in a series of military attacks.

Whilst Pakistan deny that they had any involvement in the suicide attacks, India have made their position clear by stating that they want the issue of terrorism along the Line of Control to be addressed. Officials on both sides have called for calm and don’t want the situation to get out of hand, but the future of Kashmir and it’s people continues to hang in the balance, as the region embroiled in conflict for over 70 years continues on it’s rocky road to freedom.
