Violence in Kashmir not an answer and killings must stop: UN
United Nations: In the wake of a terror attack in Kashmir that claimed the lives of five Indian security personnel, UN chief Ban Ki-moon has said violence is not the answer to any problem and the killings must stop.
"What he (Ban) has said in cases such as this; violence is not the answer, violence should come to an end and that the killings must stop," Eduardo del Buey, Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, told reporters yesterday in response to a question on the current situation in Kashmir.
Two terrorists disguised as cricketers stormed a CRPF camp near a school at Bemina, killing five of its personnel on Wednesday in a major suicide attack in Srinagar.
The two `fidayeens`(suicide militants), who entered the Police Public School school ground in the outskirts of the city hiding automatic rifles and grenades in cricket kits, were eliminated after a 30-minute gun battle following the attack.
