India:  One Soldier Killed And Three Suspected Rebel.



At least three suspected rebels and one soldier were killed in Indian-controlled Kashmir after fighters stormed a paramilitary base, according to local officials.

The attack began in the early hours of Tuesday when three fighters raided the heavily guarded Border Security Force (BSF) camp outside a regional airport in Humhama, some 17km from the area's main city of Srinagar.

The operation against the fighters continued into the afternoon as hundreds of police, paramilitary and army personnel surrounded the area.

Flights to and from Srinagar International Airport were initially suspended after the attack, but were resumed later on Tuesday.

"The flights are continuing and one flight has just landed in the airport from Delhi," Khan said.

Locals residing close to the airport said they had been woken up by the sound of heavy gunfire.

About Rebel.

Rebel groups have been fighting for decades for the Indian-administered portion to become independent or merge withPakistan.

India has accused Pakistan of arming and training the rebels, which Pakistan denies.

The latest attack comes amid a major offensive by the Indian army in south Kashmir districts. More than 130 rebels have been killed by the military this year, according to officials.

In August, suicide attackers stormed a heavily guarded police installation in the southern part of this disputed territory, killing four policemen and four paramilitary personnel.
