At least 17 soldiers died during an attack by militants at an Indian army base in Kashmir. Four attackers died after storming the base near the Line of Control with Pakistan.

The army used helicopters to evacuate injured soldiers from the base.

People set a building and several tents on fire during the attack.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned what he called the “cowardly terror attack”.

Difficult words: militant (an aggressive, radical person), storm (attack), the Line of Control (an unofficial border between Pakistan and India).
