THE conflict (冲突) in Kashmir in South Korea has created a situation of tremendous (巨大的) fear and uncertainty in millions of people's lives. At the moment, they have no reason to smile.

Since 1947, India and Pakistan have argued over who owns the Kashmir region.

Sara Gani, 47, has already lost her husband and a daughter in the Kashmir conflict.

Now she sees every death there — whether of soldiers or civilians (平民) — as a personal loss.

"Every violent incident reminds me of my husband and daughter," said Gani, who now worries about the safety of her remaining son and two daughters.

Mubina Akhter has seen at least six grenade (手榴弹) explosions over the past three years. "In one of the explosions, my children and I made a narrow escape," she said.

Now she fears for her children's safety so much that she will not let them go to school by themselves. She escorts (护送) them there and back every day.

"Till peace returns we will have to live with this fear," she added sadly.

Last Wednesday, shelling (炮击) by India and Pakistan killed 23 civilians in Kashmir. This violent conflict between the two countries has killed more than 35,000 people in Kashmir since 1989.

Conflicts and missile (导弹) tests by both India and Pakistan have increased tensions in Kashmir. The two countries each have 1 million troops on Kashmir's frontier (边境).

Pakistan test fired three missiles between May 25 and 28. The missiles can carry nuclear warheads.

India carried out a series of missile tests in January.

About 12 million people could die on the first day of a nuclear war between India and Pakistan. And many more would die from the fallout (辐射微尘), according to a US intelligence estimate (情报预测) reported on May 27.
