Pakistan Army, foreign ministry website hacked; attack ‘originated from India’

India detains 23 men with suspected links to group behind deadly Kashmir attack

India detains 23 men with suspected links to group behind deadly Kashmir attack

Indian forces responded by declaring a round-the-clock curfew.

Tens of thousands of people, mainly civilians, have died in the conflict.

Cross-border hacking attacks have been sporadic yet common since at least 1998.

The attack on India's paramilitary police follows the deadliest year in Kashmir for security personnel since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party came to power almost five years ago.

Islamabad's statement came three days after the Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing of a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Pulwama district that killed 49 troopers.

India has raided the houses of suspected militants across South Kashmir to find information on those who masterminded and executed the attack.

India says the militant group has long had sanctuary in Pakistan and accuses its neighbor of failing to act against the group or arrest its leader Masood Azhar. The US stands alongside India in confronting terror and defeating it. According to officials in India, the move has been repeatedly blocked by China, an all-weather ally of Islamabad. We strongly condemn this heinous attack and express our solidarity with families of victims, and people and the government of India.

"We have given complete freedom to the security forces of the country".

Isner defeats Tomic to advance to New York Open quarters - Omni Sports
Fifth-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation and Marton Fucsovics of Hungary both won opening-round matches. In the victory, Isner won 85 percent of his first serve points and 84 percent of his second serve points.

Thursday's bombing has caused widespread anger across India, with some demonstrations and TV news channels demanding military action against Pakistan. This after India has already summoned Pakistani high commissioner Sohail Mahmood on Friday for the same reason. "Pakistan will no doubt pay a high price", he said on state TV.

In the aftermath of the attack, India withdrew the "most favored nation" status given to Pakistan in trade services in 1996, which means India can now enhance customs duties on goods coming from Pakistan to any possible extent.

On Friday, local media reported that the Indian authorities had made a decision to withdraw the most favored nation (MFN) status from Pakistan during an emergency government meeting in connection with the terrorist attack in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan condemned the attack and rejected allegations that it was in any way responsible for it.

Meanwhile, Pakistani Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua rejected India's allegations about Pakistan's involvement in the attack, saying on Saturday that it was part of New Delhi's "known rhetoric and tactics" to divert global attention from human rights violations.

A spokesperson for the ministry of home affairs declined to comment.

The heavy death toll shocked many across the country and led the Indian government to say it would begin its retaliation by "completely isolating" Pakistan diplomatically.
