Deadly skirmishes in the disputed region of Kashmir this month set India and Pakistan back at each other's throats. Five soldiers were killed in the worst crisis in relations since the 2008 Mumbai attacks. But already, tensions are easing as the nuclear neighbours consider the bigger peace process. The territorial dispute between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir region has claimed thousands of lives; and that death toll grew further this month. India even accused Pakistan of beheading one of its soldiers, and there was international concern that the dispute could escalate. So, is Kashmir key to securing peace between India and Pakistan?
