Topic: India and Pakistan leaders lower cudgels as floods ravage Kashmir


By Fayaz Bukhari and Arqam Naqash SRINAGAR/MUZAFFARABAD (Reuters) - The prime ministers of India and Pakistan have offered to help each other in efforts to alleviate flood havoc in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, lowering tension between the rival nations after weeks of army clashes and heated rhetoric. Kashmir is divided by one of the world's deadliest and most heavily militarised borders. The disaster, which left large parts of Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, deep in water, comes weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi canceled high-level peace talks and accused Pakistan of fighting a "proxy war". "It is a matter of great distress that the retreating monsoon rains have played havoc in many parts of our two countries," Modi wrote to Nawaz Sharif, according to excerpts released by his office.
