Mobiles, internet down in Uri after infiltration bid

Internet and mobile phone services were suspended in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector near the Line of Control after an infiltration attempt by a heavily-armed group of terrorists, authorities said on Monday, media reported.

The Indian Army said a counter-infiltration operation has been underway for the last over 30 hours. Reinforcements have been called in and a large area has been cordoned off.
