Srinagar: Two persons were injured on Wednesday when
some militants made an abortive bid to target an army convoy
by hurling a grenade in Pattan area of north Kashmir`s
Baramulla district, officials said.

Militants hurled a grenade at an army convoy passing
through Pattan market, 30 km from here, at around 2.00 pm but
