Indian air force plane crashes in Kashmir

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

An Indian Air Force plane crashed in the disputed area of Kashmir on Wednesday (February 27), killing two pilots and a civilian, amid heightened tensions with neighboring Pakistan.

The aircraft is identified to be MiG21, according to local media reports.

Further details about the incident were not immediately available.

India on Tuesday (February 26) said it had launched an air strike inside Pakistan and that its warplanes killed "a very large number" of fighters at a militant training camp, raising the risk of conflict between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

Pakistan denied there had been casualties, but has warned that it will respond to Indian aggression.

Tensions have been elevated since a suicide car bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on Feb.

14, but the risk of conflict rose dramatically after India's air strike on Tuesday.
