BBC NEWS | South Asia | India and Pakistan swap POWs

BBC NEWS | South Asia | India and Pakistan swap POWs: "India and Pakistan swap POWs
India and Pakistan have carried out a rare exchange of prisoners of war.
Two Indian soldiers and a Pakistani returned to their respective countries at a handover at the Wagah border post.
Correspondents say that such transfers are unusual - particularly because both sides had earlier denied holding prisoners of war.
The handover - which took place amid scenes of jubilation on the Indian side of the border - comes as both countries are holding peace talks. "
