    Tensions between India and Pakistan reached a new peak on Sunday after militants attacked an army base in Uri and killed at least 18 Indian soldiers. The attack by militants, which India claims had ties to Pakistan, came amid violent protests that have been going on since Indian forces killed a separatist militant in July. Since then, more than 70 people, including protesters and Indian security forces, have been killed in the India-controlled section of Kashmir.

    Responding to the attack at the military base, India's First Secretary to the UN, Eenam Gambhir, just gave a powerful and hard-hitting speech addressed towards Pakistani authorities.
