China has released 10 Indian soldiers after a violent clash between India and China.
Indian media sources said that a lieutenant-colonel and three majors are among the soldiers released.
At least 20 Indian soldiers have died in the fight in the Galwan valley. Tensions between the two countries ultimately increased. Also, 76 Indian soldiers have injured. China has not reported any casualties.
The border between the two countries can shift with topographical changes as the region is poorly established.
