A couple of days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh issued warning to Kashmiri leaders over using anti-India slogans, Pakistani flags once again appeared during a gathering in Anantnag on Friday.

Indian police said Friday they have detained a pigeon that flew into a village near the heavily militarised border with Pakistan on suspicion it was being used for espionage. Police said they had X-rayed the bird to see whether it was carrying anything suspicious after a villager spotted a stamp under its feathers that bore Urdu script and the name of a Pakistani district. "We sent the bird to a polyclinic where X-ray scans were done to see if there is any spy camera, transmitter or hidden chip," senior police superintendent Rakesh Kaushal told AFP by telephone.
To mark the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers, a commemorative event was co-hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and COMSATS Institute of Information Technology Friday at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
