Pakistan says one dead in latest Kashmir clash
ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistan's military accused India on Wednesday of killing an army officer and seriously wounding a soldier in the latest clash across the disputed border in Kashmir.
Tensions have flared between the nuclear-armed neighbours in recent weeks over the Himalayan territory, which both control in part but claim in full.
Skirmishes have erupted across the heavily militarised Line of Control (LOC), the de facto border in Kashmir, since five Indian soldiers were killed earlier this month in an ambush which Delhi has blamed on the Pakistan army.
"A Pakistan Army officer Captain Sarfraz embraced shahadat (martyrdom) due to Indian troops' unprovoked shelling at Shakma sector on line of control," a Pakistani military statement said.
