SRINAGAR, India (AP) Pakistani soldiers crossed the cease-fire line in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir on Tuesday and attacked an Indian army patrol, killing two Indian soldiers before retreating back into Pakistani-controlled territory, an Indian army official said.

The violence was the second in three days in Kashmir, where a cease-fire has largely held between the two nuclear-armed rivals for a decade. Deaths in military exchanges are now extremely rare, and the earlier incident created no signs of escalating tensions.

However, the countries have fought two full-scale wars over the disputed region and diplomatic nervousness is never far from the surface.

S. Chawla, an Indian army spokesman, said the Pakistani soldiers crossed into Indian-controlled Kashmir near the town of Mendhar, about 110 miles (175 kilometers) from Srinagar, the region's main city, taking advantage of thick fog.
