It has been confirmed that at least seven Hindu pilgrims have been killed in a crossfire in Kashmir. Another 19 Hindu pilgrims have been wounded.

According to the Indian police spokesman, militants and the police were exchanging fire at Botengo last night on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway where the police checkpoint was located. The bus, filled with roughly 60 tourists, was caught in a crossfire just after sunset.

Travelling after sunset is banned in the region due to security concerns. In addition to driving after sunset, the bus didn't have the usual police escort either. It's not yet known if they had the correct paperwork.

There haven't been any bigger attacks on pilgrims in this area since 2002.
