At least nine Indian soldiers have been killed by militants who attacked an army brigade headquarters near the border with Pakistan.
Sources within the Indian army said between four and six "fidayeen" - commando-style gunmen willing to fight to the death - had broken into the area in Uri, in the Jammu & Kashmir province.
They said the dead toll may rise as the army was continuing to deploy helicopters to help evacuate the 20 others injured in the dawn raid.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he was aware of the situation and had cancelled planned trips to Russia and the United States.
