India says Pakistan responsible for attack

India says it holds Pakistan directly responsible for an attack by suspected separatist militants on an army base in Indian-administered Kashmir, on Tuesday.

The accusation was made by the Indian Defence Minister, George Fernandes, after he visited the army base and those injured in the attack, which left more than 30 dead.

The United States envoy, Christina Rocca, who is in the region for talks on Kashmir, said infiltration by Islamic militants into Indian-administered Kashmir must stop.

She was speaking in Delhi before leaving for Pakistan.
