Suspected militants opened fire on an Indian army convoy on the outskirts of Srinagar, killing at least five and wounding seven others, ahead of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to the disputed Himalayan region tomorrow. The militants fled from the scene and half an hour later hurled a grenade on Indian paramilitary forces in Barzulla area , some two kilometers away. Hizbul-Mujahideen, the largest guerrilla group fighting Indian rule since 1989, claimed responsibility for today's attack, and had just two days before gunned down two policemen in the heart of Srinagar city.
