India and China claim vast swathes of each other’s territory along their Himalayan border. It erupted in a deadly war in 1962. And although a truce is in place with a “Line of Actual Control,” the border remains disputed.
On June 15th, tensions along the border turned violent for the first time in over half a century.
India says at least 20 of its soldiers were killed after hand-to-hand fighting with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley. China has not released any information on casualties.
