In the wake of a terror attack in Kashmir that claimed the lives of five Indian security personnel, UN chief Ban Ki-moon has said violence is not the answer to any problem and the killings must stop.

"What he (Ban) has said in cases such as this; violence is not the answer, violence should come to an end and that the killings must stop," Eduardo del Buey, deputy spokesperson for the Secretary General, told reporters on Friday in response to a question on the current situation in Kashmir.

Two terrorists disguised as cricketers stormed a CRPF camp near a school at Bemina, killing five of its personnel on Wednesday in a major suicide attack in Srinagar.

The two 'fidayeens'(suicide militants), who entered the Police Public School grounds in the outskirts of the city hiding automatic rifles and grenades in cricket kits, were eliminated after a 30-minute gun battle following the attack.
