Twenty-eight people, including 19 Indian soldiers have been killed and several others injured after their bus blew up in a landmine explosion in Kashmir.

The powerful explosion on the road connecting Srinagar and Jammu in India's Jammu-Kashmir state occurred when a Border Security Force convoy was passing by, said Neeraj Sharma, a spokesman for the paramilitary force. The force is the main component of the Indian military fighting separatists in the region.

Kashmir's Inspector General of Police, K Ranjendra, told Aljazeera's correspondent six women and three children were among those killed.

"It was a massive blast followed by four more explosions". He said the convoy was targeted while heading to Jammu, the winter capital of Kashmir.
