Thousands of people in Bijbehara in India-administered Kashmir took to the streets to mourn the death of a militant killed in gunfire with Indian forces, Wednesday, October 16.

Pakistani and Indian troops traded fire in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, killing four civilians and wounding a dozen others, officials from both sides said.

Tensions remain high between the two South Asian countries as New Delhi restored mobile phone services after 10 weeks of a communications blackout, which was imposed to prevent militants from using social media and the internet to provoke protests.

Indian-administered Kashmir has experienced unrest and sporadic anti-government protests since New Delhi revoked its special status.

Speaking at an election rally in the western state of Maharashtra on Sunday, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi said it would take no longer than four months for life in Jammu and Kashmir to return to normal.
