ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani army says one soldier has been killed and another wounded after Indian troops opened fire across the disputed frontier in the region of Kashmir.
Pakistan’s military says in a statement that the shooting early Saturday took place in the Rawlakot area along the Line of Control that divides Pakistani-held Kashmir from Indian-held Kashmir.
A spokesman for the Indian army in Kashmir Col. R.K. Palta blamed Pakistani troops for the incident, saying they fired “unprovoked” across the frontier with automatic weapons, mortars and grenades. He said there were no casualties on the Indian side.
Pakistan and India each claim Kashmir in its entirety, and have fought two major wars over the area.
