NEW DELHI - India lashed out at Pakistan after two Indian soldiers were killed in a firefight in the disputed region of Kashmir, and reports spread that one of the soldier's body had been mutilated.

India's Foreign Ministry issued a statement about the incident that used the terms “barbaric and inhuman mutilation,” reports the Indian newspaper The Hindustan Times.

The Pakistani daily Dawn reports that Islambad responded to the incident by calling India's allegations "baseless and unfounded." For yet another time, the two Asian neighbors are clashing over actions along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, the mountaineous region both stake territorial claim to.
