SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) — Six Hindu pilgrims, most of them women, were killed in a gun battle that erupted in Indian Kashmir on Monday (July 10) following two of militant attacks on police.
The pilgrims were in a bus on their way back from the Amarnath shrine deep in the Himalayas when their bus got caught up in the crossfire in Anantnag town, police said.
