Kashmir attack kills one
SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir (CNN) -- A grenade attack on Indian security forces in the heart of Srinagar killed one bystander and wounded 14 other people -- three critically, police said.
The grenade was thrown at security forces around 1 p.m. Thursday (3:30 a.m. EDT) at the base of clock tower in the city center, an area known at Lal Chowk.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but police blamed militants.
More than a dozen guerrilla groups have been battling Indian rule in Kashmir almost since India's independence from Britain and the creation of Pakistan.
Indian officials estimate 38,000 people have been killed during the 11-year military insurgency and blame Pakistan for stoking the fires. A charge Islamabad denies.
