In this photo by Channi Anand, villagers in Indian-controlled Kashmir take shelter inside an army bunker anticipating firing from the Pakistan side of the border. Indian and Pakistani forces have exchanged gunfire and mortar rounds several times in recent days, with 10 deaths of villagers, soldiers and suspected insurgents reported since Friday. Military leaders from both sides spoke by phone on Tuesday about the cease-fire violations. India and Pakistan both claim Kashmir in its entirety and have fought two of their three wars over the region.
