BBC Reunites Kashmir Families

21 June 2004

Muzaffarabad: The BBC is launching three days of internet webcasts on Monday to reunite families separated across the Line of Control dividing Kashmir. In the first initiative of its kind, families who have not been in contact for decades because of the lack of phone services and direct travel, are being given the opportunity to get in touch with their loved ones. An hourly video conference between Srinagar in Indian-administered Kashmir and Muzzafarabad, on the Pakistani side, will be webcast on BBCUrdu.com from 1100GMT until Wednesday.
