A bomb blast killed at least 18 Indian paramilitary police in India-controlled Kashmir on Thursday، police said، a day after an explosion wounded a dozen schoolchildren in the state.

The Indian-ruled part of Kashmir has been plagued by violence for years، with clashes between security forces and militants killing more than 100 civilians over the past year.

Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) took responsibility for the attack، according to local news agency GNS.

The explosion was heard from several miles away. Mohammad Yunis، a journalist who reached the site minutes after the explosion، told Reuters he saw blood and body parts scattered along a 100-metre stretch on the highway.
