Three Indian soldiers killed near Jammu
Three Indian soldiers were killed in a major terror attack on an army artillery unit in Jammu and Kashmir's Nagrota on Tuesday morning. 

Heavily armed suicide attackers entered the unit at 5:30 am with grenades and forced their way in. Three terrorists are believed to have been killed but more are still hiding.

The terrorists fired indiscriminately at the Officers' Mess before storming the building.

Nagrota, which is around 20 km from Jammu, is the headquarters of the army's 16 Corps, a massive military formation that defends the borders and fights terrorists in the greater Jammu region. 

The army camp is surrounded by thick forests and a river flows just behind it.

The army has cordoned off the area and all schools have been shut down. Traffic has been stopped on the highway, which is very close to the camp.

In September, 19 soldiers were killed when terrorists from Pakistan attacked an army base in Uri. 

A few days later, the army carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control targeting staging areas for terrorists planning to attack Indian cities, according to a news agency report.
