Radical Islamists attacked and killed one man and cut the tongues and noses off four other villagers in a remote village in Kashmir:
“These foreign militants are ruthless,” he said, referring to guerrillas India say are Islamists who cross into its part of Kashmir from Pakistan, and sometimes even Afghanistan.
Villagers in the area said the attackers were probably acting out of revenge, suspecting the locals of informing the police about the presence of a militant who was killed in the area in April.
Elsewhere in the region, a civilian was killed and five others, including three policemen, were wounded on Friday when suspected militants fired at a police patrol near a mosque in Bandipur town, north of Srinagar.
