Two killed in blast in Pakistani Kashmir

A suicide bomber attacked a military vehicle in the Pakistani part of the Kashmir region on Saturday killing two soldiers, security officials said.

The Pakistani part of the disputed Kashmir region had for years been free of fighting until several attacks there over the past year.

The suicide bomber attacked the vehicle as it was traveling through the southern part of Kashmir, near the town of Rawalakot and not far from the de facto border with India, the officials said.

"A man jumped on a military vehicle at a turning in the road. Two soldiers were killed and four wounded," said a military official who declined to be identified.
