Two Indian soldiers have been killed in a firefight with Pakistani troops, after a routine Indian patrol intercepted Pakistani forces crossing the Line of Control under the cover of thick fog. CNN reports on the clash and notes that it comes after another deadly exchange days earlier. The heightening tension serves as a reminder that, regardless of flavor-of-the-week global hotspots, war on the Indian subcontinent remains one of the world's most likely scenarios for nuclear warfighting.
