Rebels storm police station
Suspected separatist rebels stormed a police station in India-controlled Kashmir on Thursday and shot and killed at least six people before attacking a nearby army camp, killing four soldiers, police said. Security forces killed three attackers after nearly six hours of fighting inside the army camp, said Ashok Prasad, a local senior police officer.
Protests leave at least 27 dead
At least 27 people have been killed in protests in Khartoum over fuel subsidy cuts, a medical source said on Thursday as another bout of the worst unrest seen in Sudan's relatively well-off central regions for years broke out in its biggest port. Police fired tear gas volleys to quell a small protest in Port Sudan on the Red Sea coast, according to witnesses.

Tens of thousands of survivors of Pakistan's earthquake waited for help in soaring temperatures on Thursday, as the death toll rose past 380 and anger grew at the slow pace of government aid. More than 100,000 people made homeless by Tuesday's quake spent a second night in the open or under makeshift shelters as response teams struggled to reach the remote region in Balochistan province.
