Travel to Kashmir has been risky for many years because of Islamic separatist activity and corresponding crackdowns by Indian security forces, but since May 26 India has been attacking guerrilla forces with jets and helicopters in mountainous areas near the Pakistani border. Pakistani leaders have offered to meet with their Indian counterparts to reduce tensions but so far India has rebuffed them. The two countries have fought two wars over Kashmir since their partition in 1947, and it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that the current situation could spin out of control.
