Life moves fast. News moves faster. The Indian government investigated a mass of unmarked graves in Kashmir where more than 2,000 unidentified bodies lay. Officials and rights groups disagree over whose remains they are, with the former claiming they are militants. Rights groups, however, are postulating that the bodies are some of the 8,000 innocent people who have “disappeared” since 1989.
Life moves fast. News moves faster. John McCain visited Srinagar, Kashmir, Tuesday as part of a trip where he also met leaders in Pakistan and India. While the US senator met with top Kashmiri officials, he did not speak with any separatists, who say McCain’s visit will not affect the Kashmir issue anyway. Following reports that Pakistan allowed China to view the remains of the Black Hawk helicopter than went down during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the latter nation denies having seen the machinery. Pakistan’s ISI also denied the reports, while a military spokesman said the accusations are part of a smear campaign against the country.
