Srinagar: Two civilians were killed and six people wounded in Indian Kashmir on Thursday when suspected Islamist militants hurled a grenade at a security patrol in a busy marketplace, police said.The attack in Chadoora town, 10 miles west of Srinagar, the main city of the disputed region, came a day after Kashmir's main separatist alliance and New Delhi agreed to work together to bring peace to the revolt- torn region.
