Four policemen killed in IED blast in J&K

An explosion killed four policemen in a closed market at north Kashmir's Sopore town on Saturday morning, triggering worries that militants were back to using the bomb after a three-year break.

Meanwhile, Pakistan based terror outfit Jais-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the IED blast. According to reports, three shops were also damaged in the blast at Gole market in Sopore.

The militants detonated the remote-controlled IED when the policemen reached the scene while doing their rounds, the police officials said.
