India’s prime minister has said the
deaths of at least 20 soldiers in a fight with Chinese troops in a
disputed Himalayan border area “will not be in vain”.

Modi said India would be “proud that our soldiers died fighting the
Chinese” in the clash in the Ladakh region on Monday.

Soldiers reportedly brawled with sticks, bats and bamboo sticks studded with nails. No shots were fired.
