Attack Tests India’s Thaw With Pakistan

Shootout at air base challenges Prime Minister Modi’s efforts to improve ties with Islamabad

NEW DELHI ― Indian security forces hunted suspected militants at an air force base near the country’s border with Pakistan on Sunday after two days of running gun battles that left at least seven Indian security personnel dead, posing a challenge to recent efforts at reconciliation between the estranged neighbors.

A senior Indian Home Ministry official said the assailants appeared to be part of a Pakistan-based Islamic militant group. There was no claim of responsibility for the attacks.
