Rebel attacks in Indian Kashmir kill 1, wound 6

Police in Indian-controlled Kashmir say three attacks by suspected Islamic militants have killed one person and wounded six others.
Local police chief Imtiyaz Hussain says rebels opened fire at a police station in Sopore town in the first attack Saturday morning. Police returned fire but no one was injured.
He says militants then attacked an armored vehicle in the same town, killing a bystander and seriously wounding two policemen. Three civilians also received gunshot wounds. The rebels later threw a hand grenade at a government building, wounding one person.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The rebels reject Indian sovereignty over Muslim-majority Kashmir and want independence or a merger with neighboring Pakistan.
