The air force base, where "two low intensity explosions" were reported, is located in Jammu city in Indian-administered Kashmir. Officials are calling it the first such incident of its kind in the country.

The explosions in the early hours of Sunday injured two people.

The airbase in Jammu is also used as a civilian airport. There was no disruption to civilian flights.

New Delhi has stationed more than half a million forces in the region – making it one of the most militarized zones in the world – as it tried to quell an armed rebellion that erupted in the late 1980s.
