SRINAGAR, India – A bomb tied to a stray dog in Indian-controlled Kashmir blew up on Friday, killing the animal and wounding four people, police said.
The bomb, believed to have been planted by militants, exploded near a bunker of Indian soldiers in Sopore town in the north of disputed Kashmir, a spokesman said.
It is not the first time suspected militants have used animals in attacks on Indian forces. In 2000, a bomb packed on a mule exploded, killing two soldiers.
More than 45,000 people have died since a revolt against Indian rule in its portion of Kashmir took off in 1989.
