SRINAGAR: At least 20 Indian soldiers were wounded in Kashmir when militants detonated a bomb in a shop as the troops' vehicle passed by, police said yesterday.  

The attack came a day after authorities said separatist violence had fallen since India and Pakistan began a ceasefire last month along a military control line that divides the Himalayan region between the nuclear-armed rivals. 

Police said the explosion occurred in the Lawaypora area on the outskirts of Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.
