Kashmir gunfight: Six killed, two injured in 16-hour battle

Two soldiers and four suspected militants have been killed in a fierce gun battle in Indian-controlled Kashmir. An army spokesman said the six died during a heavy exchange of fire in the border village of Marsari, 130 kilometers northwest of the main city of Srinagar. The 16-hour gun battle began on Friday, when government forces zeroed in on an abandoned house, after receiving information about the presence of suspected rebels. Two other soldiers were injured and taken to a military hospital. Militants have fought a guerrilla war against Indian troops in Kashmir since 1989.
