JAMMU, India, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- A grenade attack outside a Kashmir mosque during prayers Friday injured at least 15 people, the BBC reported.

The blast went off outside the mosque in Jammu in the Indian-administered part of Kashmir, where some 200 were worshiping.

Two of the injured are reported to be in serious condition.

The attack comes days after Pakistan and India announced they plan to discuss the Kashmir dispute and other issues that have long divided them.

However, some Islamic militant groups have vowed to continue their armed struggle until Indian forces leave the region.

Additional security was deployed quickly to prevent any backlash of communal violence.
