“We deplore the attack on #Amarnath pilgrims & condemn all acts of terrorism. Deepest condolences to the families & all those affected,” the US ambassador’s Twitter post said.

Seven Amarnath Yatris were killed and 19 injured in a suspected militant attack in southern Kashmir’s Islamabad district last night.

The bus was on its way from Baltal to Jammu when the attack took place.

The bus was not part of the Amarnath yatra convoy and was plying after the 7 pm deadline imposed by the officials on the movement of the yatra vehicles.
