Missile found in Kashmir
The army in Indian-administered Kashmir says its soldiers have discovered a surface-to-air missile in a suspected hideout for separatist militants in the frontier district of Kupwara.

A Indian army spokesman said the missile, an ANZA Mark 1 which is similar to those used by the Pakistani army, proved what he called Pakistani involvement with militants in the region.

Pakistan has always said that it only provides ideological support to the rebels, whom it describes as freedom fighters.

India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir since gaining independence from Britain in 1947.
