Pakistan says it has shot down two Indian Air Force jets in a major escalation of the Kashmir conflict.
A spokesman said one plane had fallen in Pakistani territory and two pilots had been captured. Pakistan also denied reports one of its jets was shot down.
India has confirmed the loss of an MiG21 fighter and said a pilot was missing. It said it was investigating reports of his capture.
Both India and Pakistan claim all of Kashmir, but control only parts of it.
The nuclear powers have fought three wars since independence from Britain in 1947. All but one were over Kashmir.
Malaysia’s former deputy prime minister, Anwar Ibrahim, jailed for sodomy three years ago, walked free from prison in May after receiving a royal pardon.
That was initiated by the new prime minister under whom he was first sent to prison – Mahathir Mohamad.
Ninety-two-year-old Mr Mahathir was elected on a promise to release his long-time rival and has pledged to hand over power within two years.
The BBC’s Lyse Doucet asked Mr Anwar whether he trusted Mr Mahathir.
Naeem says his brother Faizan died after he was beaten by police during religious rioting in Delhi last week. Video of the incident has gone viral.
More than 40 people died in three days of violence, which largely targeted Muslims – although both Hindus and Muslims were among the dead.
More than 200 others were injured in the violence, which first broke out between supporters and opponents of a controversial citizenship law that critics say discriminates against Muslims.
Delhi police have not responded to a BBC request for comment on Faizan’s death. They have faced criticism for failing to stop the rioters and, according to some reports, standing by as Muslim homes and mosques were attacked.
After years of fast-paced growth, India’s economy is losing steam. In this country of more than a billion people, domestic consumption is one of the main drivers of growth but unemployment is rising and people’s purchasing power has taken a hit.
While the government maintains that the economic slowdown is temporary and a revival is not too far ahead, for now the impact of the slowdown is being felt across industries. Car sales are declining, private investment is slowing down and the shadow banking sector is in a crisis.
India’s central bank has cut interest rates to boost the slowing economy, but is this enough? And with ambitions to become one of the world’s most powerful economies, which sectors can help drive India’s growth in the next 10 years?
We speak to the vice chairman of the Indian government’s policy think tank, an independent economic analyst, and a business journalist. We ask them what India can do to beat the current economic slowdown.
