India Claims to Foil Infiltration Plot in Kashmir

The Indian Army claimed to foil an infiltration plot by killing three militants near the Line of Control between Indian Kashmir and Pakistan on October 23rd. A gunfight broke out about 70 miles northwest of Srinagar in Indian-controlled Kashmir. General Singh reported there are teams of eight to nine who are trying to cross the border every day and that 42 anti-India terrorist camps are being run in Pakistan. That figure is as high as it has been in the past ten years, which means progress made in reducing the number of camps when General Musharraf was in office has been reversed. The camps and the infiltration infrastructure cannot exist without support from Pakistan.

North Korea in Danger of Food Shortage This Winter

A report to the UN Secretary General indicated North Korea is in danger of another food crisis this winter because of poor harvests. A South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman reaffirmed the government policy of not providing large scale food aid to North Korea, regardless of need unless the political atmosphere improves. Prior to the 2008 election of the hard line Lee administration, the South provided 400,000 tons of rice and 300,000 tons of fertilizer to the North annually. The government in Seoul will still approve private humanitarian relief, such as a recent shipment of rice and supplies for flood victims.
