Conflict harms Kashmir tourism

Recent cross-border fire scares visitors away from disputed region, once a magnet for tourists.

    Kashmir was once a magnet for tourists from all over the world, but it is better known now as a conflict zone these days.

    India and Pakistan have fought over the region since they gained independence in 1947.

    Tourists have began to find their way back to Indian-administered Kashmir, but it takes just one incident to make numbers go down again.
