India and Pakistan Blame Each Other for Recent Deadly Exchange on Kashmir Border

One Pakistani officer dead


(Reuters)—The Pakistani military said on Wednesday one of its officers had been killed in "unprovoked" firing by Indian troops across the border in the disputed Kashmir region but an Indian official said his side had only responded to initial Pakistani fire.

The incident was the latest in a series of clashes that began this month which has undermined a push by Pakistan's new civilian government to improve ties with old rival India.
