Kashmir: Caught in the middle

Renewed tension between India and Pakistan after grandmother crosses Line of Control.

Did a grandmother spark the current India-Pakistan flare-up? Clashes along the Line of Control are said to be the tail end of a series of events that began when a 70-year-old crossed into Pakistan-controlled Kashmir to be with her grandchildren. Is this a reflection of how fragile peace is between the two countries? And is lasting peace even possible without resolving the Kashmir dispute?
