57 hurt in Kashmir market blast
NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- A grenade has exploded in a busy market in the town of Pulwama in Indian-Kashmir, wounding 57 people, including a policeman, police sources told CNN.
Pulwama is 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of the winter capital Srinagar.
The explosion happened at 1:00 p.m. (0730 GMT) when someone tossed a grenade at a passing army convoy, police said.
The grenade missed the convoy and detonated among dozens of civilians shopping in the market, police said.
Eight of the injured are in serious condition, police said.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
A 14-year insurgency in Muslim-majority Indian-Kashmir has killed an estimated 30,000 to 60,000 people.
India says Pakistan trains, arms and funds the militants and orders them to attack Indian military and civilian targets but Islamabad denies the charge.
