#Terror attack

Security was stepped up in Kashmir on Wednesday following the terror attack in Kulgam district in which five labourers from West Bengal were killed, even as a complete shutdown disrupted normal life across the valley, officials said.

The building where the shooting took place in Virginia Beach, a city on the east coast of the US about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast of Washington, housed the city's public works and utilities offices.

In addition to the terror charge, Brenton Tarrant also faces 51 charges of murder and 40 of attempted murder over the March 15 attacks that rocked the South Pacific nation.

Australian Brenton Tarrant was previously charged with one murder as a holding measure, but police said all the deaths and injuries in the March 15 attacks would be reflected in upgraded charges during his next appearance on Friday.

The incident took place around 10:30 am on Saturday when a Hyundai Santro coming from the Kashmir side, hit the bus and one of its two LPG cylinders (appeared to have been carrying it) exploded. The other cylinder was found at the site of the incident, police said.

A man from Hyderabad, Farhaj Ahsan, has been declared dead by the authorities in New Zealand as he was missing after the terror attack on Al Noor mosque in Christchurch in New Zealand. Farhaj went to the mosque for Friday's prayers but went missing after the attacks.

Families are receiving the mortal remains of 38 Indian Jawans who lost their lives in the worst-ever terror attack on an army convoy in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rajnath Singh and Chiefs of Indian security forces paid their tributes to all 38 bravehearts at the Palam Airport on Friday.
