Pakistan's Khan warns of 'bloodbath' in Indian Kashmir

  Pakistan's Khan warns of 'bloodbath' in Indian Kashmir Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan warned the UN in stark terms Friday of the threat of a "bloodbath" in Kashmir, even invoking the possibility that its dispute with India over the territory could escalate into an all-out nuclear war. The Indian-controlled part of Kashmir has been under lockdown since New Delhi scrapped its semi-autonomous status in early August, and Khan said armed forces there would turn on the population after the curfew was lifted.

Many people in Kashmir have been seething since India stripped its portion of the Muslim-majority region of autonomy on Aug. 5, shutting off phone networks and imposing curfew-like restrictions in some areas to dampen discontent.

Some of those curbs have been slowly relaxed, but mobile and internet communications in the Kashmir valley are largely still blocked.

"Terrorists lobbed grenade in Anantnag," police in Kashmir said on Twitter. "Area under cordon. Searches are going on."

Another account from police said only "minor injuries" had been reported.

The blast took place near a government office, a police official told Reuters on condition of anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak to media.

If confirmed, that would appear to mark the first attack near a government office since India's crackdown on the region.
