Pakistan accuses India of killing woman in Kashmir
MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan (AFP) - Pakistani authorities on Sunday accused the Indian army of cross-border shelling that killed a woman and wounded seven other civilians in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.
"A woman was killed and at least seven other villagers were wounded when Indian forces fired shells from across the Line of Control (Loc)," said local government official Masood-ur-Rehman.
She was the fifth Pakistani reported to have been killed in skirmishes across the heavily militarised de facto border since five Indian soldiers were killed on Aug 5.
Delhi blamed the Aug 5 killings on the Pakistani army, but Islamabad denied any responsibility and has called for restraint and dialogue.
