ISLAMABAD/NEW DELHI: Parliament was paralysed on Wednesday as opposition lawmakers angrily protested over the government's response to an ambush in which five soldiers were shot dead on the border with Pakistan in the disputed region of Kashmir.The uproar, for the second day in a row, derailed the government's legislative agenda and raised question marks over whether it will be able to drive through long-pending economic reforms during the short session, which ends on August 30.Defence Minister A.K. Antony told parliament on Tuesday that a group of about 20 heavily armed militants accompanied by “persons dressed in Pakistan Army uniforms” had ambushed an army patrol earlier that day near the 740-km (460-mile) Line of Control (LoC) in the Himalayan region.It was one of the worst such attacks since the two nuclear-armed rivals signed a truce in 2003 and it cast a pall over planned talks by top Pakistani and iNDIAN officials..–REUTERS
