  • Punjab gunmen expose India's soft border ahead of Pakistan talks

    By Andrew MacAskill and Frank Jack Daniel DINANAGAR, India/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Three men carrying assault rifles, bombs and a rocket launcher who went on a murderous rampage in a small Punjab farm town this week have shown how vulnerable India is to attacks that challenge tentative peace overtures with neighbor Pakistan. Monday's raid in an area that has long been tranquil came weeks after a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.
