NEW DELHI—Twenty Indian soldiers were killed during a “violent face-off” with Chinese troops on the contested border in the Himalayas, the Indian army said in a statement on Tuesday regarding the first such incident between the two countries in 45 years.
Tensions have been growing on the long-disputed Himalayan border since last month, with both New Delhi and Beijing accusing the other of crossing the 3,488-kilometer-long Line of Actual Control that separates the two sides.
