Pakistan Accuses India of Firing Shells Across Kashmir Border

Tensions rising

|

Pakistan accused Indian troops of firing shells across the disputed border in Kashmir on Monday after last week's killing of Indian soldiers set off a wave of skirmishes between the two nuclear-armed rivals.

Tension along the 740-km (445-mile) Line of Control that divides Kashmir flared on August 6 when five Indian soldiers were ambushed and killed in the Poonch region. New Delhi blamed the attack on the Pakistan army. Islamabad denied involvement.
