India, Pakistan push ahead with route for Sikh pilgrims

India and Pakistan agreed on Thursday to go forward with a new border crossing and route for Sikh pilgrims to visit a holy temple in Pakistan. The agreement was the first between the two nations since a dogfight between their warplanes last month. The Sikh community in India has long sought easier access to the temple in Kartarpur, a village just over the border in Pakistan.
