'Militants' killed in Delhi shootout
Police in the Indian capital, Delhi, say they have killed two suspected militants in an exchange of fire.

A senior police officer said his men opened fire when a car sped through a checkpoint at the southern entrance of the city.

Reports say a large cache of arms and ammunition were recovered.

One other suspected militant is believed to have escaped.

Police say they are investigating whether the men were from Pakistan, which has repeatedly denied accusations of sponsoring terroism against India.

The incident took place a day after the first anniversary of an attack on the Indian parliament in which 14 people, including all five attackers, were killed.
