  • Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday unleashed the country's military against rival Pakistan in response to a terror attack by Muslim separatists that killed 44 on Thursday.

  • Modi said his country's "blood boils" and gave his military a "free hand" to determine "the timing, place and nature of their response."
