Kashmir cease-fire shows signs of fraying as Pakistan, India step up violations

Fear has returned to border areas of Kashmir after a series of cease-fire violations on the de facto frontier dividing the region between India and Pakistan shattered five years of calm, locals say.

Troops stationed along the heavily militarized Line of Control (LoC) traded fire four times during July. Each side blamed the other for starting the clashes residents in the area say they fear could escalate into heavier battles between the nuclear-armed neighbors.

The entire region feels like its a cauldron of unrest, just getting ready to explode.
