Three militants dressed in Indian army uniforms have killed at least nine people in twin assaults near the border with Pakistan.


The gunmen first attacked a police station in the India-controled Kashmir, killing five policemen and one civilian. They then raided a nearby army camp and killed at least three soldiers.


The fighting in the army base went on for nearly six hours, before all three gunmen were shot dead. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called the incident a "heinous terrorist attack" in a statement, but said it wouldn’t derail peace talks over the Kashmir issue. He’s scheduled to meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly this weekend.


A man claiming to be the spokesman of a previously unknown militant group -- Shohada Brigade, or Martyr’s Brigade, has claimed responsibility for the attacks in a phone call to a local news paper.
