Shelling across India-Pakistan border killed 2 Pakistani civilians, Indian soldier

Shelling across India-Pakistan border killed 2 Pakistani civilians, Indian soldierShelling across the border between India and Pakistan killed two Pakistani civilians and an Indian soldier, military officials from the two sides said on Monday, Reuters reported.

Pakistan's military said the shelling hit the sectors of Harpal, Pukhlian and Charwah along the disputed "working boundary", which separates Pakistan's Punjab province from Indian-administered Kashmir's Jammu region.

India's military said the firing occurred in the Pura, Pargwal and Kanachak sectors.

Both countries have claimed the disputed Kashmir region in full since partition and independence from the British in 1947, but administer separate portions of it. They have fought two of their three wars over the territory.

Pakistan's military said a one-year-old child was among the dead in Pakistan in the village of Janglora. Pakistani forces responded to the Indian firing and an exchange of fire continued through the night.

Seven civilians were wounded in the firing, Pakistan said.

In India's Jammu region, a Border Security Force (BSF) soldier was killed by the Pakistani firing, while another was wounded, a BSF spokesman told Reuters. Five civilians, including two women and a child, were also wounded, he said.
