Eight soldiers and 13 Muslim rebels were killed in a gun battle in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. A police spokesman said the battle took place in remote Doda district. Earlier, soldiers gunned down a suspected militant who was part of a group trying to enter an Indian army camp in Kupwara district. Elsewhere soldiers and police shot dead three rebels in separate gun battles. India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars over Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state.

The federal government assumed direct rule over India's Jammu and Kashmir state because lawmakers failed to agree on a coalition government after state elections. The temporary move put Gov. Girish Chandra Saxena in charge until state parties agree on a new government. No party won a majority in the state legislature, and two of them -- the Congress and People's Democratic parties -- were arguing over which would get the post of chief minister if they formed a new ruling coalition.

In a significant step toward peace in Kashmir, India and Pakistan agreed Wednesday to start a bus service linking the two sides of the territory, which has been divided by more than half a century of conflict. The breakthrough brought fresh momentum to a year-old peace process that had shown little progress in resolving the dispute over the Kashmir region, a former "princely state" torn apart by rival Indian and Pakistani claims after Britain withdrew from the subcontinent in 1947.
