    Indian soldiers ride in a military truck as they move towards a camp in Jammu on January 10, 2013.

Two Indian soldiers died after a firefight erupted in disputed Kashmir on Tuesday as a patrol moving in fog discovered Pakistani troops about 500 metres (yards) inside Indian territory, according to the Indian army.
