Pashmina goat 'cloned for first time'

Scientists in Indian-administered Kashmir claim they have successfully cloned the first Himalayan goat which produces the famed pashmina wool.

Pashmina wool is a major source of income in Indian-administered Kashmir, but the number of Himalayan goats that produce it has been dwindling in recent years.

Now scientists claim to have successfully cloned such a goat.
