Tensions between India and Pakistan are growing. People are worried the two countries are heading for war. Pakistan shot down two Indian military jets on Wednesday. They captured an Indian fighter pilot. This happened after Indian jets dropped bombs on Pakistani territory. India said it was bombing a terrorist base linked to a suicide car bombing that killed at least 40 Indian police officers in Indian-controlled Kashmir. It is the first time Indian jets have hit Pakistan since a 1971 war. Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for peace talks.

Pakistan closed its airspace on Wednesday. International airlines have suspended flights to Pakistan and some parts of India. Airlines that fly over India and Pakistan had to re-route flights to avoid the region. An aviation expert said about 800 flights a day use the India-Pakistan air route. He said it was "very critical". He added: "You can't fly over China, so you have to fly over Pakistan and India and go to Southeast Asia and Australia. Most of the traffic destined for Bangkok and Singapore will have to fly over Iran and then possibly take a detour."
