SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Police say a grenade tossed at a meeting of government and village officials in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least two people and wounded four others.

Police say the officials were meeting in a government building in southern Badasgam village on Tuesday when unknown attackers hurled the grenade.
