Bus unites Kashmir families

India-Pakistan weekly bus service helps to bring together families living in divided region.

    The foreign ministers of India and Pakistan will meet later this week for talks aimed at restarting frozen peace negotiations.

    The wide ranging talks are an attempt to rebuild trust between the neighbours, with the longstanding dispute over the region of Kashmir high on the agenda.

    Ahead of those talks, Aljazeera has taken a closer look at the Kashmir conflict, which has split families for decades.
