Except for Reuters and Times of India, every other site reporting this are of "National Enquirer" caliber.

NEW DELHI: A day after an Indian soldier's body was mutilated+ by Pakistan-based terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC), the Army on Saturday launched retaliatory fire assaults at Pakistan Army positions, inflicting massive damage across the border.

The Army said at least four Pakistan Army posts were destroyed "in a massive fire assault" in the Keran sector alone on Saturday. "Heavy casualties (among Pakistani soldiers) were inflicted in this assault," said a statement issued by the Northern Command based in Udhampur.

The conflict seems to be over control of the Kashmir area. Both India and Pakistan, as well as China, control sections of it. It's nothing new as it's been going on for over a hundred years.

Of major importance is that both countries have nuclear capabilities. Obviously, China does also. Hope there's no itchy trigger fingers around.
