Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir government on Monday said Amarnath Yatra would resume tomorrow from Jammu base camp after being suspended for the last three days due to curfew.

"Amarnath Yatra will resume tomorrow from here and will move with an army convoy," Principal Secretary (Home), Suresh Kumar told reporters here.

The Yatra was suspended for the third consecutive day today from Jammu due to curfew.
